So okay, we all know that chop is a LOT of work but so worth it for healthy babies. Some find it relaxing and therapeutic to process veggies for the week but when you run a rescue, one that is truly focused on good husbandry, then imagine how much work it is to make chop enough for 80! The birds in our Rescue eat as well as the ones in our home so Chop is a mission around here. I though you might enjoy a few pictures of how we feed the "troops" around here. :)
The little berries in the bowls are cranberries. Very good for your birds.
They all love it and are doing very well on this healthy diet. We round out the veggies with a bit of fruit (not too much), tree nuts, and healthy pellets (ZuPreem daily or Roudybush maintenance). No seeds, no dried fruits, no peanuts.
This is JUST the food; they also get cages cleaned regularly, showers, and nails and beaks cared for.
As you can imagine it is a LOT of work but we do it For the Birds because they deserve to be well cared for and loved. We are working to get them ready to start a NEW life with a NEW flock so whoever gets to adopt one of our birds will have a GREAT start on a happy Fid.
