Tonight I make some nice crunchy balls for the birds. The idea comes from the organic foods & treats from Avian Organics food. Each time I make balls, they are different, since the ingredients differ.
Not all recipes are provided with measurements. I cook by estimation, you’ll pick that skill up pretty fast 😉
Harrisons pellets pulverized
sambal (indon. chilipaste)
little sunflower- and pumpkin seeds
little sweetener (Stevia = a naturally sweet & calorie-free herb ) -> Next time I do not apply.
water and an egg
In the oven at 175 C (350 F)
for 25-30 minutes and cool down.
I taste it: it is nice 😀
The balls will stay fresh for a few days in a sealed container or in the frige. I like to keep it in the freezer. Defrost the balls before you gif it to your birds.
Tomorrow we will see if the birdies like to eat the homemade crunchy balls!
