There is no real recipe for making chop, it’s all about making food in a large batch and then freezing it in single day serving sizes. And because the produce is finely chopped in a food processor, parrots are not able to pick out and eat their favourite things. Even picky eaters get a much better diet! Chop can be made from any parrot safe vegetables. The list below is just an example of some of the things you can add to your chop.
