What is soak mix?
Also, try sweet potato wedges stuck between the wires of their cage. Ours love them and the orange mash all over their faces is quite ammusing.
I take it the sweet potato is cooked right?
from my conure forum:
you birds big & small will love this!
Here is what I use:
1/4 cup of each (dried, found by the rice at the store)
white beans (small)
popcorn kernals (regular old popcorn you would use in a pot)
you can add other beans, or lentles, barley etc. as you preffer
soak overnight, then drain & rinse the next day. Put in a pot and cover about 1 inch over with warm water. slowly simmer for about 1 hour.
drain & rinse again, then cool. for easy meals, put in ice trays and freeze, then pop them out & put in a freezer bag. Pull out as many as you need, and defrost on the counter for about 15 minutes.
(a sugestion, for first timers, try getting a small bag of the "bean soup mix" it will have a lot of beans, hopefully the peas etc. that way just add the rice, and you dont have to buy a ton until they get totally hooked to it!)
a note: dont use black bean, it makes the mix all grey & dirty looking, really gross lol
and you can also add pasta, they love it!
