Very Berry Pasta Omelet with Fruit Salad Recipe

Disclaimer:

Eggs are a high cholesterol food for Parrots. They should only eat eggs once every 21 days. African Grey parrots should never eat eggs. Dairy is not digestible by Parrots. We occasionally sprinkle a little cheese on top and feed to our new rescues that are not used to eating cooked food. You can leave the cheese out on all these recipes. 1 serving = 1 Parrot

Serving suggestions

  • Serve 1 tbsp. of your veggie mix warm on one side of the bowl.
  • Then 1 tbsp. of this specialty dish on the other side of your Bowl.
  • Then add 2 tbsp. of fruit salad mix making sure that you’re offering at least three pieces of each item.
  • For soft billed parrots and especially cockatoos, they love organic oatmeal. You may wish to make some organic oatmeal and then add in a couple of slices of peaches on top, after the oatmeal has cooled down or any fresh fruit on top of the oatmeal.

Serving time suggestions

Parrots are always hungriest in the morning hours. So this is best to serve this to them in the morning but if you do decide to feed them in the evening hours, it’s recommended to poke a dishes out of their cages within one hour after they wake up in the morning so you make sure you’re not serving them any spoiled food
