African Grey enjoying pomegranate seedsPomegranates are a favorite fruit for my flock, but they are only in season for a short amount of time. Late October through early December is the season for pomegranates. I found a way that my parrots can enjoy pomegranate seeds out of season which requires minimal preparation.

Deseed your pomegranate and arrange the seeds in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place them in the freezer for 2 hours or until frozen. Once frozen, put them into a freezer bag or container and store them in the freezer. They should be good for up to 6 months.

My parrots enjoy the frozen seeds on their own as a special treat or scattered over their morning vegetables.
