Note: This recipe is also intended for people so you can eat it, too! Or make it for your human self and human family as well... hehe. Also, it's not meant for a full diet for your bird so serve only as much as once a week when it comes to oatmeal for your parrot. Feel free to make it your own and add whatever nutritious foods your bird loves (or doesn't love but is still healthy!)
