Birdie Bread For Parrots

Bronze Feedback Medal for All Time! 107 Feedbacks

This is an easy recipe for feeding your finicky parrot, especially African Grey parrots and Amazons. It's a great way to get them to eat vegetables and they don't even know it, but they love it!


Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: a month's supply for 2 birds



  1. Put Jiffy mix in big bowl and mash out the chunks. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, mix room temperature eggs, banana, sweet potato, cinnamon, garlic powder, and peanut butter/almond butter.
  3. In third bowl, put shredded veggies.
  4. Add wet mixture and water to Jiffy mix and stir. Add veggies by handfuls then stir until all is added. If you shredded too much, feed the rest to the birdies.

  6. Stir to normal consistency. If it's too wet add some dry oats or more Jiffy mix. If it's too dry, add a bit of water. Don't over stir.
  7. Bake in oiled or oblong pan sprayed with Pam for 20-30 minutes at 400 degrees F. It can be checked with sticking a knife in it until the knife comes out clean, but it is very moist.
  8. Store in fridge 24 hours before slicing. May be frozen in individual servings. I put 2 pieces per small Ziploc baggie.

You can eat this too. Normally I put lots of red and yellow peppers, but I was out. The more brightly colored veggie, the better. You can hide all the veggies in here. Cooked veggies are more nutritious than raw, they say.

no they also eat pellets. They eat TOPs pellets, Harrisons pellets and Roudybusch pellets.

Parrots or birds of any kind, for that matter, do not need Jiffy cornbread mix. It's garbage that contains sugar, lard & numerous preservatives.
