4 Parrot Chop Recipes!

Making parrot chop is one of our favourite things to do. It allows us to get creative with trying new ingredients in order to provide a diverse diet to our birds!

It can be easy to get stuck in a rut of making the same vegetable combination over and over again, so today we are sharing with you four of our most recent chop combinations. You don’t have to include every ingredient if you can’t access it where you are in the world, you can always substitute it with something else!

Here are some of our top tips for making parrot chop:

Add fruit separately each day to avoid spoilage

Grow your own herbs on your windowsill

Add sprouts and soaked items separately each day to avoid spoilage

Buy bags of salad with multiple ingredients as a cheap way to increase diversity

Plan your chop around your own meals to reduce food waste

Add organic dried flowers, herbs, oats and shredded coconut to absorb excess moisture
