My Chop "Recipe"

I see a lot of requests in bird groups and forums all over the web asking for a good recipe for chop. It's hard to give a definite or correct answer to that question because there simply isn't any right way to do it.

(Chop, for those who don't know, is simply a name for "salad" or "mash" as some call it. It usually consists of veggies, fruits, legumes, and grains, or some combination of those. It's a way to give our feathered friends a tasty, healthy variety of good things to supplement their diet. For my crew, it makes up about 30-40% of their diet.)

For a long time, my birds would not accept any frozen chop, so I developed this formula to help me stay focused on nutrition without making a ton of food.

You can use this formula whether you want a little or a lot.
