Rani’s surprise cabbage package
By Ilse Meyer

Make use of spinach leaves, mealie leaves, broccoli leaves, or kelp leaves to tie your parrot’s favorite snacks in. In mine, I used chilies, nuts, pumpkin seeds, muesli, carrots, cabbage, naartjie, sesame seeds, green beans, strawberry, and pomegranate. I make two at a time and keep one in the fridge for the next day.
