First of all, a little bit of science.

As we all know, seeds have all the nutrients necessary to grow a plant. When we soak seeds or grains, in water the seeds start absorbing the water. The intake of water signals the seed to use its stored energy for growth through the activation of enzymes. 
In other words, the water intake releases large amounts of nutrients within the seeds to become a plant. With this knowledge we will use this to create our raw bird chop recipe. 

Raw bird chop recipe is a non-cooking recipe, where we will use nature and science to create a nutritious meal for our companion birds and parrots.

Directions for Raw Bird Chop Recipe

Rinse your soak your grain/seed mix a few times.  Then add three times the amount of cold water than your soak mix and let it soak overnight. Your soak mix is going to absorb the water so make sure it is submerged all the time. Add more water if needed. 

In the morning, rinse well. Add cut-up veggies and fruit to the soak mix. I also added greens which were chopped in the food processor. 
Mix in some healthy seeds like chia and flax. Mix in some spices of our choice. 
Mix and serve your raw bird chop mix.

PS: For any leftover of the soak grain/seed mix, you can start the sprouting process by rinsing the soak mix three times a day, until it starts to sprout. Parrot sprouting is ideal however not necessary for this recipe. Sprouting seeds for birds provide all the essential amino acids.
