*For maximum nutrition, use 1 TBS organic palm fruit oil instead of cooking oil when baking.*
Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C) .
Combine entire bag of mix with 2 whole organic eggs - no shell (remove yolk for less fat), 1 TBS high quality organic vegetable oil (or red palm fruit oil), and 1 cup (235 ml) water.
Fill greased bread pan or muffin tins and bake for 25-35 minutes.
Do not bake in nonstick (PTFE-coated) cookware, as the fumes are toxic to birds.
If prepared with the addition of fruits, vegetables or nuts, Bird Bread should be considered a "treat" and fed only in limited quantities (no more than 10% of the daily food allotment when combined with all other treats).
Can be served warm.
Some flavorings (vanilla, maple) or herbs can be added as long as they do not change the nutritional content.
Bird Bread can be stored for 1 week in the refrigerator and up to 6 weeks in the freezer after baking.
Baked Bird Bread can be divided into portions, wrapped in plastic wrap and placed back in the original Harrison's Bird Foods bag for storage in the freezer.
Bird Bread should not be reheated in a plastic container.
Excellent product-severe macaw was in love at first bite
Today I made the birdie bread for the first time. Raisin is a 19 week old severe macaw. She didnt like my homemade version LOL I have never seen her be so enthusiastic about eating anything. She just gobbled it all down! Hopefully it will help her transition onto their pellets. So far, shes not too keen on those

My bebe parrot loves this bread mix and the corn kernels in it. I bought the millet and flax bread mix and she wont eat it.

My Quaker and canaries love this birdie bread. My older canary was feeling his age, so I started offering this birdie bread as his main diet and he has come alive again. I use the sunshine factor when I make it so I know they are getting the BEST! I recommend this to all birds, period.

Made a difference for our Parakeet
Our mother unexpectedly had to enter a long-term care unit and so we had to take her parakeet. It did well after some adjustment and then very suddenly became ill. Took it to a specialty vet and discovered we knew very little about the overall care of a parakeet -- more difficult than one would think. The vet informed us that its diet was very lacking -- we were only buying bird foods offered in traditional pet stores and therefore causing health issues. The Vet recommended Harrisons bird bread and foods. Making the bread from the mix was very easy and it has made a big difference in the health of the parakeet.
