This is one of those recipes I feel very stupid for making and reviewing before seeing what I was making it other then for a photo. SO laugh all you want because I am. SO, I did not clue in....this was a recipe for a bird. Yes, I didn't pay attention to the bird word in the recipe title. AND yes I did try it, on a personal note, it wasn't bad, it wasn't great either, it was okay. Then I'm sitting here wondering, why, am I doing this...this way?! And that's when I read, what this recipe was why it was....my husband has laughed at me all evening. And it's okay, I'm laughing too. Because I don't have a bird. So as a friend suggested, I'll freeze these and break them in pieces for the birdies that visit my property over the winter. I'm sure they will love it....and I added millet seed to some of them they were easy to hold shape. But great recipe for birds...I tell you ;-)

My macaw loves these! I used mixed tropical fruit bits instead of just raisins and added some chopped walnuts - he ate 3 of them while I was still rolling them and declared them to be "gooooood yum!" - his highest compliment. These will be a staple in his diet. Thanks for a great recipe.

My cockatoo loves these and I love that I can customize them with whatever bird friendly food I've got on hand. I've made them with corn, peas, applesauce, granola, you name it! It makes a lot and is so much cheaper than nutriberries, plus I like knowing what is in it and that there's no preservatives. I microwave a ball for 10 seconds just to take the chill of the refrigerator off of it and my bird grabs for it as soon as it hits his cage.
