Bird Slaw


Birdie Cabbage Slaw Salad

1 small head of cabbage
1 pound fresh carrots
1 large bunch of fresh broccoli heads with partial stems
4 summer squash with the ends cut off
1 large green or red bell pepper
Cup of Blueberries (optional)
1 apple chopped (removed apples seeds)
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Remove outer leaves of cabbage and thoroughly rinse all fresh foods to remove any pesticides or other contaminants.

Cut cabbage into sections and finely chop. A food processor helps make this an easy task. Layer cabbage in large plastic container. I use a sheet cake container upside down so that the bottom becomes the lid, and it holds this slaw perfectly.

Next chop broccoli and spread evenly over the cabbage.
Then finely chop the carrots and spread evenly over the broccoli.
Next chop squash and layer on top of the broccoli.
Finely chop the peppers and layer next.

When finished layering the slaw, add 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar sprinkled over the top of the slaw.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To serve, take a large serving spoon and scoop out ever how much you need to feed your flock, and place into a bowl. Stir mixture thoroughly and add a fresh chopped apple to the mixture.

This bird cabbage slaw can be fed to all birds, from finches and canaries, to the large macaws.  

A great recipe for adding Vitamin A and calcium to your bird's diet. A great favorite of all my birds..
