After having green veggies literally thrown at me for the last time, I decided to get a little more creative and decided to start making homemade food for him. It's much easier and I think much healthier than any pellet diet. My Timneh African Grey gets tons of veggies every day and loves them. It has literally sliced my Timneh African grey food bill into a quarter of the cost I previously spent. I now spend less than ten dollars a month buying Timneh African grey food. Honestly, Leo, my Timneh African grey loves this food more than anything I've ever purchased from the store for him.
Here's how you can make your very own Timneh African Grey Food
ï‚·Buy a frozen bag of mixed veggies
ï‚·Buy frozen spinach
ï‚·1 can of pinto beans
ï‚·1/2 bag of macaroni
ï‚·A little salt
ï‚·Red pepper flakes
Boil some water in a large pot. Add all of the frozen veggies and pasta. Cook for however long the bag of pasta says to. Strain in a colander. Add a little olive oil, garlic powder, and salt just for flavor. Excessive salt is not good for Timneh African Grey Parrots so use sparingly. Add your red pepper and then serve. I make huge batches and then freeze. I put enough for a couple days into each bag. Probably about 1 cup of food into each bag. Your Timneh African Grey will love this recipe and might really help you get some veggies into him or her. This recipe is really flexible and you can add anything else your Timneh African Grey loves. I sometimes add kidney beans, rice, garbanzos, and nuts. He really enjoys vegetables now and is much healthier.
