Absolutely love your blog, your ideas are fantastic and so inspiring. I have never used a dehydrator to prepare my birds’ food but am going to start. I love what you are doing, please keep sharing!
Thank you Sue, hope you are making lovely meals for your birds with the dehydrator too
I’m enjoying the view of your blog, and even if I don’t have any bird ( I have only one wild cat and it’s enough…) you amazed me!
Really you do some fantastic recipes for birds! Better than most human.
Thank you Stefano: I LOVE your artwork!
Hello. I run a pet sitting business and am president of the Baltimore Bird Fanciers. May I post some of your recipes on my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/petsittersllc and/or our club newsletter?

I hope that we reach many parrot owners this way!
Thank you so much!
My Quaker Chloe is not allowed to have ANY carbs anymore, i.e. rice, pasta, quinoa. Any good ideas for a new thing for her? She usually gets romaine or spring lettuce, brocolli, cauliflower, grated carrot, snow or snap peas, cooked frozen peas and corn sometimes, grapes, zucchini, apple, pomengranate, orange, pear and sometimes banana. Thanks. I am allowed to give her half a Cheerio a day but I cheat and give her a whole one.
So I looked up what Quakers do eat in there natureal habitat:
“Quaker Parakeets native habitat is extreme southeastern Brazil, through Uruguay to Central Argentina.
In the wild these birds usually reside in lowland and low rainfall areas, in open forest trees along watercourses, savanna woodland, palm groves, farmlands and orchards.
Groups go out from the nest and band together to feed in open grasslands or cultivated fields. They feed on seeds, fruits, berries, nuts, leaf buds and blossoms, insects and their larvae. Favorite foods include seed of thistles, grasses and various trees, especially tala and palm nuts.”
I always recommend to offer the food as much as possible what they can find in their natural habitat.
I love your website and it gave me so many ideas for my babies. I think I will start on my own home made pellets. I am doing research for a dehydrator now. What brand do you use? Any you recommend? Do you see a huge increase in your energy bills as a result of the use?
Thanks for your help
Hi Jacqui, I am glad you like my website and want to make your own pellets. At first I use a Stockli dehydrator, not that expensive and so I could get the hang on dehydrating. Now I use a excalibur dehydrator, the fan is on the back instead of the bottom, and I’m really fond of it! The dehydrator uses very little power, which can be read anywhere on the internet, so really worth to buy.
Have fun making pellets!
