Sandi (From CA)'s Note:
As editor of a local animal shelter's newsletter, I have added one recipe per issue of various animal recipes. With this one, my cockatiel, Girly, feels like a Starbuck's patron with her very own biscotti! I draw the line at a frappuccino, though. Caffeine and chocolate are among many birdie NO-NOs! NOTE: Time does not include waiting for egg shells to dry or cooling after baking. Cooking time is PER BATCH. *Wheat grass for birds can be purchased online at http://www.naturechest.com/wheatgrass.html.
