"Let Monika know that all the large macaws get her nuts as treats but Lola gets a dozen every day.
She requires a higher fat content in her diet & Mac nuts provide this and more for her." ~ Deb

Web Editor's Note: My special thanks to Deb for correcting my misconception that parrots were in the fowl catagory.
I promise never to make that mistake again. My apologies to all you parrots out there.
Hope I didn't ruffle any feathers.

Lola (right) is a beautiful Hyacinth Macaw and Jesse (above) is a spectacular Greenwing. These two birds are Deb's personal pets and companions.

The wonderful birds below are 'Sanctuary Birds', and may be visited on the website www.squawktalk.org.

Once at the website's Home Page, click on the link for "no-R-birds Sanctuary" to see the many birds like Carly, Matilda, Michael, and Ollie 'n Rainbow. How lucky these birds are to have someone like Deb to care for them.

"Mac Nuts and honey arrived today Monika, thanks so much for the prompt shipping.  My Hyacinths were completely out of their mac nuts the past few days so I was the hero today for providing their favorite staple for dinner this evening!  Gorgeous nuts...thanks so much!  Will be back in a couple of months, hopefully you will still have some in stock."

Take care, Connie B.

We received our standing order of Mac nuts today. As always they are very nice. You are very generous to send us the 2 extra pounds at no charge. Our macaws love these yummy treats and the extra nuts are wonderful for training and positive reinforcement. thank you so much for your kindness.

Regards, Deb & the flock

Just a short note to say "Thank you" for the wonderful macadamia honey which you enclosed with my recent nut order. The nuts are for our Green wing macaw, Carmen, but the honey will be for the rest of the family. It's absolutely delicious!

…, but I do need nuts as soon as possible, as my Hyacinth Macaw "Max", is finicky and your nuts are about 75% of his diet. I am attaching a picture of him, as one of your most loyal customers!!!

Kindest regards, Jeanette

Just another note of thanks. Winnie's macs arrived in the mail today. You have never seen a happier bird.

Vickie & Winnie

I raise a lot of macaws, and particularly Hyacinths which require high fat diets. I've ordered from you before and found the quality quite good which is important to me. I'd like to set up to order 17 lbs /month under your subscription plan.

Sincerely, Darrel

"Great service, fast shipping, great product, great prices. Thanks for your help. I received my nuts for my Hyacinth Macaw Lilly, and she is a happy girl. Thank you!"

Ok, all you Kitchen Commandos out there! Here is your chance to share those wonderful Macadamia Nut recipies that have been lying in that kitchen drawer for years. Pull them out, dust them off, and type them up... then e-mail them to us (include a picture, if you have one). We'll do the rest!

Here's one from me, just to get things started. ~ Monika

Roasted and Flavored Macadamia Nuts
Contributed by Monika Nauen, Pahoa HI

1.5-2 lbs Macadamia Nuts, in the shell (will yield approximately 1 cup of kernels)
1 Tbsp Garlic flavored sea salt (or other flavor, such as ginger. Plain salt is good too)
4 oz Hot water

Carefully crack the in-shell nuts to keep them as whole as possible. Preheat oven to 225 – 250 degrees F. Place the nuts in a shallow pan (an iron skillet or baking sheet is good for this). Thoroughly disolve the flavored salt in hot water and sprinkle or mist the nuts with the solution. Put pan in oven and roast for 10 to 15 minutes or longer, stirring occasionally.

Monitor the process closely and remove them from the oven as soon as the browning process begins. Allow to cool. Enjoy.
