Have You Tried Harrison’s Hot Pepper Bread?

West African Grey ParrotYes, you can buy bird food and treats for your pet parrot, but what can be a lot of fun – especially if you’ve got your feathered friend right there to lend a helping claw – is making the treats yourself.

Harrison’s hot pepper bird bread is really easy to make (so perfect for a Sunday afternoon activity and a great opportunity for you to spend quality time with your parrot), so don’t be put off if you don’t think you’re much of a baker. Now’s the time to learn!

Harrison's bird bread mix hot pepperAll you need is a couple of eggs, 240ml of water and the bird bread mix… it really couldn’t be easier to make your parrot something seriously delicious to eat.

You can also add in nuts, vegetables or fruit if you want your parrot to really eat up his greens, but if you do this make sure you only feed the bread to your bird in limited quantities. You can also add in other flavourings like maple or vanilla, or even herbs – but be careful you don’t change the nutritional content of the bread.

Once you’ve made your bread, you can either use it instead of table food if your bird likes to be included in family meal times, or as a foraging reward. Alternatively, you can soften the bread and offer it to your bird if it’s feeding chicks and on the lookout for some tasty soft food.
