Warm Food

Recommended Posts

We just had sweet potato for dinner and since it has been awhile since we have had it, Peanut went nuts. It got me to wondering what everyone's favorite warm foods are?

OK, your birds favorite warm foods - not yours! LOL

Miss Gilbert has been partial to her warm bean and grain mix with red palm oil. She previously has turned away the sweet potato mash, sweet potato with peanut butter, banana etc. and she has dissed the warm oatmeal, but she is suddenly obsessed with the oatmeal, so we are looking to try some new warm "fixin's".

Well, oatmeal and sweet potato seem to be the main likes.

Miss Gilbert's palette must be maturing.LOL

HRH Inara loves warm sweet potato, broccoli, carrots, black and red beans with Louisiana hot sauce on them, and used to love a warm mash that I made for her which she now turns her nose up whenever offered. Her very very favorite that elicits much clucking and "Oh boy!"s is her morning breakfast of either an organic flax seed or hemp seed multigrain waffle with just a skimmer of red palm oil and warmed tropical fruit puree on it. She also likes it when I put tiny bits of almond, brazil nut, and various bits of fruit and veggies into the waffle "traps." She looks forward to breakfast every morning. She eats the top of the waffle, leaving a complete other waffle on the reverse side -- which our dog patiently awaits.

Now Cricket my amazon loves "anything" warm hot or cold. If she can eat it, it`s gone.

Now my grey Corky, It`s Potato, toast with butter, oatmeal or any thing you may be eating.

Yes, you just cook the oatmeal as you would if you were making it for yourself. When you feed something warm, make sure it has cooled enough. Things that are too hot can result in a burn to the crop. When I am feeding Timber something warm, I make sure it is barely above my body temperature. Be sure to look at the sticky's for the list of "do not feeds" for your baby. There are things such as avocado, chocolate, etc. that you cannot feed your bird at all. As Ray said, expected for the prohibited list, most of us give a birds a little of the stuff we are eating at mealtimes. You will have to experiment to see what your bird likes and doesn't like. They are as individual in their tastes as people are. My TAG, for instance, will not eat oatmeal. Some greys love it. He will eat a lot of other things warm, and loves being spoon fed.

Warm oatmeal (no salt or sugars), warm mashed potato- sweet or white, warm rice, warm birdy bread and warm scrambled eggs. These work for all of the flock. I sometimes make them an omelet with finely minced veggies and a little shredded cheese. I love that waffle idea mine do enjoy a warm pancake.

Mine also like oatmeal. I make it with cinnamon. Not sugar and cinnamon, just cinnamon. Sometimes a little unsweetened applesauce too.

Yes, I make it for myself and take a small bowl out before I add milk and sugar for me. The small bowl goes to the birds. If your bird is a baby you may want to make it a little thinner. Just a little.

Gracie has taken to warm oatmeal quite nicely. In fact, last night I had to resort to heating some up to get her back into her cage. Keto turns his nose up at almost every vegetable or grain I offer. He takes a few pellets, and loves his seedies and the nut I give him every day, but I cannot get him to take most other foodstuffs. Neither likes cooked sweet potato, but Gracie will eat raw strips of it (which Keto will play with, if not eat.
