Okay, here is the whole recipe for the cockatiel muffins:
1 box Jiffy Cornbread
6 eggs, shells included
1/3 cup milk
1 cup bird pellets
1 jar of Gerber Baby Food in the form of carrots, sweet potatoes or squash
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, cooked
1 cup sunflower hearts
And I follow the bake time instructions on the Jiffy Cornbread box.
Here are a couple websites that inspired my recipe:
Meanwhile, our cockatiel has been doing her general excitement sqwuak all morning (not the irritated sqwaud of Thursday, but still loud and tinnitus inducing), I couldn't figure out what her damage is, there is an ample supply of muffin. Then I saw it: crows working on a nest a block away but still a direct view from her perch. For Non Birding Bill and I, it's a perfect view from our couch. This nest is an old squirrel nest, so I wonder if they are just pilfering some of the nesting material or refurbishing it for our needs.
