I came up with yogurt balls when I first got WeiPea in an attempt to get probiotics in him. I have no set measurements. I just take yogurt (the good kind with the good stuff in it!), add oats, brewers yeast, honey, boiled egg yolk, slow-cook grits, cream of wheat, all-purpose yellow cornmeal, mix it all together and form into pea size balls. Sometimes I add purred peas, and carrots. If my mixture is to wet, I'll roll the balls in ground dog food or bread crumbs. I started off making really small batches,(no spoilage) but I've bumped it up some because the dogs love them too! It's a good treat for Zoe after she gets her insulin shots. I'm experimenting with home-made butters (peanut, pecan and sunflower heart) in place of the yogurt now. I'm always a "mad scientist" in the kitchen!
WeiPea likes them a lot! I think it is because when he was learning to eat, he just thought it was some crazy kind of pea! Smile


P.S.Thanks for asking M. and if anyone sees something I shouln't be adding PLEASE tell me. I was really just winging it I have NO idea

That sounds fascinating -- and yummy!

I know I think that Naunnie can start selling this stuff...market it as gourmet Pijy Food.I have to say I would love to be a pigeon in her house...it sounds like there is one pigeon out there that is getting to taste a lot more than the average bird!!

Way to go Naunnie...you are so creative!

Chef Naunnie, Chef to the Animals! Thrilled !!

I have to admit that I have tried almost every food item that other people give their pigeons as treats and I have yet to find any that our birds go crazy over. I just DON'T get it

Every holiday that we celebrate the animals get their favorite treat & I would love to give the flock a treat too.

Is it that some pigeons just don't have a fav treat or can a pij forget a traet they love & I just haven't given the right one????

I really feel bad when all the other animals get theirs and the poor pigeons get extra straw.
( they love making their nests extra big!)

Robin, did you try the same "new" treat a couple of times subsequently? I have realized that pijjies are veeeeeery conservative if they don't know a new dish. F.e. besides Pete and Emma, no-one wanted to touch the choped peanuts - they "wrinkled" their nose (if they had one) at those thingies but now they are all crazy for it! nutter

Charis I've tried greens but didn't have any luck. Could it be because all the flights have grass growing in them & the pijjies get their greens from the grass?


Petra- Yep I have given each treat for a week sometimes 2 wks. atta time and always find the treats untouched! YUK
