Hi all, Mavis said there are a lot of very friendly and knowledgeable folks on this board so here we are! I have 3 tiels of my own, who are Hurricane Charley rescues ,and I'm active in Florida West Coast Avian Society(www.fwcas.org), too. My friend, Lynda,rescued 40+ birds during Hurricane Charley in 2004 and I helped with rehoming and ended up adopting 4 of them. They were all skinny apprehensive birds when we got them and we didn't want to feed them sunflower seeds to fatten them up. I came up with a unique recipe for BIRDIEBREAD� that is mostly organic and enthusiastically eaten by every bird we offer it to. Shortly after, we started giving it to Lynda's anorexic U2, Tyler and she started eating one every day. She is no longer anorexic. I also fostered two IRNs this year, at different times and now I help rehome the fids in our new rescue room. Then, I brought BIRDIEBREAD� to club meetings, became a vendor at the local bird fair. Now BIRDIEBREAD� has now morphed into an online business with customers in 15 states and 2 foreign countries! I am also a vendor a many of the bird shows and fairs in FL and will be expanding to GA and NJ this year also. (I have adult children that live there) Isn't it amazing where adopting 4 little tiels can lead?

Hi Gini - welcome to the forum.

Sometimes its fairly quiet here and sometimes its hard to keep up with the conversations. Hope you'll join in as much as possible.

If you have a place to store photos online, you can post them here so we can see your birds. smile I guess you have them all in your avatar, but other photos would be nice too!

Thanks, Mavis. Actually, I have three tiels at home and the fids in my Avatar are either customers or Focus group members. Here are some pictures of my FIDs:
Charley of the Hurricane (the roof fell on his cage)


Cha-Cha,my lutino dancing boy(he had bloody nares when rescued)


Ladybird, who keeps both the boys hopping(she was blown outside into the trees)

Thanks for all your kind words, Mavis and Philip! Your tiels are good lookin' birdies, too! Is there a thread where everyone posts pictures of their FIDs? Mavis, do you remember you picked Charley for a puzzle and a postcard from last year? cool

Well, Philip, while the actual recipe of BIRDIEBREAD� Cones & Muffins is trademarked, I'm happy to share some of the ingredients. Aside from the batter, I add organic orange juice from my trees or local grove (right now, I'm using Honeybell Tangelo or Ruby Red Grapefuit), organic eggs (no shells), sweet seed mash, wheatgerm, Omega 3 oil, flaxseed oil, calcium, Vitamin D, riboflavin, niacin.

In Veggie, there are chopped organic veggies, in Beanie, there are 20 different boiled beans (I mix), in Hot Pepper, there are 3 kinds of hot peppers. I'm testing adding Red Palm Oil to the batter with the Focus group this week. There is nothing in BIRDIEBREAD� that others couldn't do BUT my product is not a mix, it is the actual Homemade cones and muffins. This is a convenience for parronts with just a few fids or who are working and don't have time to bake or don't want to bake! They want to offer their fids a healthy, mostly organic treat that's fun,too. I provide that service and product for the fids of Indulgent Parronts, lol. Since I'm now in 15 states and 2 countries, it's working out pretty well.

If you or anyone else would like a copy of the February BIRDIEBREAD� newsletter, just PM me with your regular email cause the pdf is too large to upload here. In it, There's a Valentines Special for Red Hot Lovers and Studmuffins! End of shameless promotion, lol. grin

If anyone is in SW FL, the Caged Bird Club of Charlotte County is having its Bird Fair at the Tentorium in Punta Gorda tomorrow from 9AM-4PM. There should be about 70 vendors there, including BIRDIEBREAD. Stop by my table and introduce yourself- It's fun meeting our virtual friends in person!
