Hi! I am an Eclectus parrot owner and I love to cook! Why not be able to share your meals with your fids? I hope these ideas will encourage you to eat healthier as well as enrich the lives of your parrots. Enjoy and happy cooking!!

These recipes are designed to be made for you and your family AND be safe to share with your parrot. Special consideration has been given to the unique Eclectus diet. Please be aware that, where noted, some ingredients should be added ONLY to the human servings. If you have questions or suggestions feel free to add them in comments for that recipe!

Pumpkin Pancakes


·        1/2 C canned pumpkin
·        1/2 C low-fat vanilla yogurt
·        1/4 tsp baking soda
·        1 large egg yolk
·        1/4 C cake flour
·        4 large egg whites
·        EVOO
·        Maple syrup or honey (people only)


  1. Whisk together pumpkin, yogurt, baking soda, egg yolk & flour.
  2. Whisk egg whites & fold into pumpkin mixture.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet with a small amount of EVOO over medium heat. Spoon in 1/3 C batter for each pancake.
  4. Flip when tops are covered with bubbles & edges are slightly brown (about 3 minutes per side).
  5. Set aside a couple for the fids.  Drizzle with syrup or honey for the people.
**As a special treat for the fids, serve with a smear of peanut butter or wrap up some fresh fruit bits in a pancake and secure with a toothpick!  YUM!!
