Hi everybody ,

This topic was put in the arab forum by " Bu Nawaf " so , all his copy rights are reserved .

This is a link to the original text :

Egg and biscuit meal

A perfect and important meal for birds . It's rich in proteins , vitamins , amino acids , starch and fibers .

Image

Eggs are rich in the best protein kinds as well as 13 essential vitamins like vitamin B12 , mineral salts and amino acids essential for building tissues , muscles and growing feathers .

Egg and biscuit meal should be fed to birds for a plenty of time to prepare them to breed .

It's very important to be fed to the birds after chick hatching ( during baby care ) , and their speed growth . When vitamins and amino acids are added to this meal that guarantee the safe growth of baby birds and improving their immunity against diseases .

During the rest ( no breeding ) in summer we should reduce the amount of this meal as birds don't need excess protein .

It's fair enough to feed the birds hard boiled eggs in summer once a week . That's not to give the bird an overdose of protein which might result in liver diseases .

During summer we must concentrate on feeding the bird a variety of food , vitamins and amino acids to make up for the lost weight .

In summer the birds tendency to drink water increases and as a result their food amount decreases .

In winter the birds tendency to drink water decreases and as a result their food amount increases .

That explain why birds lose their good during summer and regain it in winter .

Vitamins and amino acids should be added once a week only , because they have side effects .

How to make the egg and biscuit meal ?

Eggs are hard boiled for 20 minutes

Image

Leave the eggs to cool down then remove the crusts and mash it .

Image

Ground bread crumbs or biscuit is added to the mashed eggs and mixed together .

Image

A little amount of water is added to ease the mixing process and a few amount of olive oil to make the mix tender for the longest time possible plus adding a very little sprinkle of salt .

Image

You can add some of the seed mix to this meal to encourage birds to eat , especially birds which aren't used to eat it .

Image

Toast can be used as a substitute for biscuit or bread crumbs . I prefer it for my birds .

Image



An economical way to introduce nutritional supplements to your bird :

You can add vitamins and amino acids to wet bread and feed to the birds .

It's a very economical and practical way of introducing supplements to your birds making sure that these supplements won't get affected by the weather in case of high temperatures .

Birds consume this meal quickly which allows them to get the highest benefit .

Boiled rice and potato meal

This meal is fun for birds and it's fair enough to know that :

Rice contains proteins , starch , fats and mineral salts like :
potassium – sodium – calcium – manganese – iron – phosphorus – sulfur – iodine – vitamins – fibers.

Potatoes contain vitamins – starch – mineral salts like : iron – calcium – potassium – phosphorus – copper .

How to prepare boiled rice and potato meal ?

A little amount of rice is washed and rinsed well then strained from impurities .

Image

Boil the rice , remove water then leave it to cool down .

Image

Boil the potato then leave it to cool down after that peel and cut it .

Image

Mash rice and potato together very well , add a little amount of water to ease the mixing process and a few amount of olive oil to make the mix tender for the longest time possible plus adding a very little sprinkle of salt .

Image

You can use milk and yoghurt to rise the meals nutritional values .

These meals are supplementary meals that are added with the main food which is the seed mix or pellets .

Best wishes and good luck :)
