Harrison's Bird Bread

Recently I have purchased two bags of Harrisons Bird Bread in the attempt to try and introduce more variety into my budgie's diet. Digby loves all sorts of bird breads so I knew he will enjoy it too.
I have bought two different varieties: Millet & Flax and Hot Pepper

The Ingredient list reads:
Millet & Flax reads: Harrison's Bird Foods, Grey Millet, Brown Flax Seed, Baking Powder (aluminum-free) calcium carbonate.
Hot Pepper: Harrison's Bird Foods, Grey Millet, Sweet Corn, Cayenne Pepper, Baking Powder (aluminum-free) calcium carbonate.
Baking Instructions:
You'll Need:
1 bag Harrison's Bird Bread Mix
2 whole eggs (no shells)
1 cup water
1 Tbsp HEALx Sunshine Factor or vegetable oil

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350 F (180C). Pour contents of bag into medium mixing bowl.

Add rest of ingredients.

Mix thoroughly and pour into greased bread pan or muffing tin. I sprinkled some Harrison's High Potency Fine Pellets on top

Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Once ready, cut into small squares (I get about 30 squares per loaf) and freeze.

This is the squares of Millet & Flax Bread I baked, cut and froze earlier.

For my budgie I prefer to put a square of bread on a skewer. She seems to enjoy shredding it more than eating it but I am sure something gets inside! Digby loves it and eats with pleasure!
