“I stumbled across this recipe and just HAD to make it for my feathered friends. My birds, 2 cockatiels, a cockatoo and a lovebird, go wild for this stuff. Those guys eat better than the human members of my I love them dearly and really enjoy cooking up things to please them. Only the lovebird does not seem to care for this recipe, choosing a different birdy bread recipe for himself (the little gourmet) This is made in a microwave and takes about 30 seconds to make. Serve only as a treat!!***This recipe calls for 1/4 cup Rainbow Exact Pellets (available at pet store) but I was unable to list them as they are not exactly a "common" ingredient.”
