Cous cous is my canaries favorite soft food ingredient. It is a major ingredient in my regular breeding nestling food. Now that breeding season is over, young birds and weaning ones love this simple nutritious recipe. Cous cous, olive oil, moringa powder, chia seeds, and poppy seeds. I put all ingredients in a large bowl and cover slightly with cool water and stir periodically to prevent lumps for about a half hour. If lumps occur, process in food processor.
Moringa source states "Moringa is known around the world as a rich source of vegetable protein (30%). It contains 18 amino acids including all 8 essential amino acids, 47 active antioxidants, 36 anti-inflammatories. In addition moringa powder contains 7x the Vitamin C found in oranges, 4x the Vitamin A of carrots, 4x the calcium of milk, 3x potassium of bananas, as well as zeatin, quercetin, beta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid, kaempferol, silymarin and essential minerals such as zinc and iron. Moringa oleifera is nature’s whole-food complex, which makes it easy for your body to recognize, absorb and assimilate."
What they failed to say was the canaries love it!
