During molting season, I like to simplify my breeding formula but still provide oil for luster and beta carotene for color enhancement.
I like to make a huge yellow tupperware bowl full and then freeze it in gallon ziploc bags. The day before I need it, I move it from the freezer to the refrigeration section for thawing.
First I but six cups of whole wheat cous cous in the bowl and add one cup poppy seeds and 3/4 cup olive oil. Mix well and add six cups of boiling water. I have a six cup electric tea pot which makes this step easy. Stir occasionally till fluffy and room temperature.
Then process one lb carrots in the food processor.
Add four cups of ABBA green 92 for yellow birds or ABBA red dry nestling food to the grated carrots. Mix into the room temperature cous cous mixture.
Add six eggs to four cups of petamine with 1/2 cup of Scenic High-energy Hand Feeding Formula and process. Then mix into the cous cous, carrot mixture.
For red birds I add one dipper bogena with carophyll red to one cup of the nestling food. I feed the red nestling food containing bogena once a day.
Caution, changing coloring agent during the molt will cause uneven coloring.
