I would like to introduce you to the newest member of my flock, his name is Jonas. He is a little blueish grey parakeet. He came to live with me last Monday. It is always fun to get to know a new animal but it has been a long time since I got a new bird and an even longer time since I got such a young bird. I had forgotten how much work the little ones are.
Slowly, Jonas is revealing his personality to me. I have already learned Jonas is pretty fearless. When I took him out of the box he came home in, he immediately jumped on the big cage and introduced himself to everyone. Instead of needing a few days in a separate cage to get used to eveyone else, Jonas just climbed inside the big cage and took over a perch. Jonas is starting to let me pick him up and hold him without having to chase him around the cage. I should be able to start finger training him and training him to stay where I put him soon.
Everything Bagel Spice
1 TBS dried onion flakes
1 TBS sesame seeds
2 tsp poppy seeds
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
pinch black pepper
pinch red pepper
Using a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, gently grind the spice mixture. You just want to break up the onion flakes a bit not grind it into powder. Use it anywhere you need a bit of spice.
