America, Baked, and Cookies: Andy Richter and 2 others liked A TINy Beefsteak @TenderBeefste.. , 9h If my calculations are correct, biscuits and Triscuits hint towards a mysterious third food called "monoscuits." correspondingnerd: brunhiddensmusings: cameoamalthea: brunhiddensmusings: threeraccoonsinatrenchcoat: badgerofshambles: a singular scuit. just one.  an edible cracker with just one side. mathematically impossible and yet here I am monching on it. ‘scuit’ comes from the french word for ‘bake’, ‘cuire’ as bastardized by adoption by the brittish and a few hundred years‘biscuit’ meant ‘twice-baked’, originally meaning items like hardtack which were double baked to dry them as a preservative measure long before things like sugar and butter were introduced. if you see a historical doccument use the word ‘biscuit’ do not be fooled to think ‘being a pirate mustve been pretty cool, they ate nothing but cookies’ - they were made of misery to last long enough to be used in museum displays or as paving stones ‘triscuit’ is toasted after the normal biscuit process, thrice bakedthus the monoscuit is a cookie thats soft and chewy because it was only baked once, not twice behold the monoscuit/scuit Why is this called a biscuit: when brittish colonists settled in the americas they no longer had to preserve biscuits for storage or sea voyages so instead baked them once and left them soft, often with buttermilk or whey to convert cheap staples/byproducts into filling items to bulk out the meal to make a small amount of greasy meat feed a whole family. considering hardtack biscuits were typically eaten by dipping them in grease or gravy untill they became soft enough to eat without breaking a tooth this was a pretty short leap of ‘just dont make them rock hard if im not baking for the army’ but didnt drop the name because its been used for centuries and people forgot its french for ‘twice baked’ back in the tudor era, biscuit was just a lump of cooked dough that wasnt leavened bread as far as they caredthus the buttermilk biscuit and the hardtack biscuit existed at the same time. ‘cookies’ then came to america via german and dutch immigrants as tiny cakes made with butter, sugar/molasses, and eggs before ‘tea biscuits’ as england knew them due to the new availability of cheap sugar- which is why ‘biscuit’ and ‘cookie’ are separate items in america but the same item in the UKthe evolution of the biscuit has forks on its family tree I love it when a shitpost turns into an actually interesting post.

Amazon, Charlie, and Children: Birds And Beaks Rescue and Rehab This will likely be the most heartbreaking post I ever write On the evening of January 1, 2018, we lost 11 birds. Most of the birds passed within about 30 minutes of each other, with the last one, a nanday conure not passing until around 4am We originally thought maybe carbon monoxide or something in the air, and began evacuation to the garage and called 911. The fire department tested both for carbon monoxide and noxious gases and our results were zeros across the board The next logical thought was food/water. We pulled all the food and water and put them on the counter The next morning, we took those birds to our veterinarian and had necropsies done for them. The initial things our doctor found were hearts were good, lungs were good, all seem to be in good health, except their stomachs were inflamed, there was a green sludge in their Gl tracts and their livers were rock hard. Gross necropsies were submitted by our vet for 2 birds to determine official cause of death with food toxicity being the suspicion There are another 3 birds that we are unsure if they will make it or not Today, January 3, 2018, I took the in-bowl samples of food to Michigan State University Before we go further, I want to make it clear I am not pointing fingers. There were 3 foods included in our mix, and thankfully we are fastidious - we have the packages that food came in so that batches can be pulled and we have contacted the companies. The foods are Zupreem Fruitblend, large size for macaws, cockatoos etc. Higgins Vitaseed Lefeber's Nutriberries MSU is in receipt of 2lbs of the food that was in the bowls and we should have results back for WHAT the toxin is within 5-7 days We spoke with another Michigan Rescue to tell them what's going on, and they also experienced a die off in the last week of 3 birds. The foods they were feeding are Zupreem Fruit Flavored Blend and Higgins Vitaseed Our hearts are broken. In a million pieces. We are not ok. We will probably never be ok again. I am happy to answer questions. What l don't want is mass hysteria. We are awaiting results back from the lab and necropsies - and all we can do is wait. What I'm concerned with is that birds are dying and unlike us - you guys usually have one or two birds. If something happens, you're thinking it's your fault. That you've done something wrong. You don't question the food because you trust it. You need to have necropsies done. You need to save your food, your bags, and you need to get it tested We don't know which food it was at this point, and we're not pointing fingers What I can tell you is that the companies are being very cooperative, helpful and working WITH us My personal opinion is that for now, if you are feeding any of those brands, please stop and feed fresh/frozen foods only until we have the results back for why this happened Please keep us in your thoughts. Our hearts are broken. We lost 11 family members. Watching my children try to give CPR to the birds we all love and care for in vain may be the worst thing I have ever witnessed, only second to walking into my aviary and seeing all but 3 of my birds in there gone Charlie Max Guido Zook Oliver Rosie Eddie Cheech (M2, boarder) Cheech (YN Amazon) Chong Pebbles My loves. Rest in Heaven my angels. My request to you - ask your questions here. Don't flood my inbox. When have answers, you shall have answers. I'm an open book. l'Il answer anything here in this thread. We are a by-the-book rescue. We don't cut corners. So ask away If you're negative - I just don't have any energy for you. I really don't. Be supportive or be gone.

Droopy wings. Vomiting a copper reddish substance, seizures begin and then death. The 3 remaining birds are still very wobbly and weak. We have 17 birds still living, including the 3 that we could still lose. Of the 17, a few had last batch food, a few don't eat this food at all (lorikeet, hyacinth), and my picky eaters are still with us. haiku-robot: rembrandtswife: wordsonbirds: tieltavern: aleksthetiel: THIS IS IMPORTANT PLEASE READ THROUGH. I’m posting this out of concern for others, as this is not a single outlying case. Please visit this rescues Facebook page and read through the comments on this post, there are others who have had similar thing happen to them. If you feed Zupreem or Vitaseed (And possibly nutriberries, but cross referencing through the comments shows that this isn’t likely the problem) I highly recommend pulling it temporarily and following this page, as they have sent away the food to be checked. This is the rescues page facebook.com/birdsandbeaks/ I normally don’t reblog sad things, but this is a reblog to save a life.  If youfeed Zupreem, Vitaseed, or Nutriberries, PLEASE read this post. From the page for those who can’t read the images who are worried about particular batches. Please check your food and watch your babes closely friends.
