    Offering Birdy Bread? (And a safe recipe for Boomer and Sparks!)

    Hi guys,
    So Enoki has been less than enthusiastic about her birdy bread. I was wondering how you guys offer it to your loves? My breeder crumbled hers up and then offered, and Enoki seems to just pick up a piece and toss it. I know some people leave theirs in 1 inch squares...what do you guys do?
    I made up a new batch today that is very moist and dense compared to her old stuff. Here is the recipe (good for Boomer and Sparks, no pesky sugar!):

    1 cup cornmeal
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    3 jars assorted baby food (I used all fruits in this case, but for Boomy an Sparks, you could easily do veggies if they can't have the sugary fruit)
    1/2 cup finely diced/food processed diced bell peppers
    1 cup finely chopped/food processed chard (or whatever other greens)
    1/2 cup pellets

    This filled about 1/2 of your regular loaf pan, took about 45 minutes to bake at 350, and is very dense and moist. I cut it into 1 inch cubes, it made about 40.
