Parrot food from scratch?

In Europe we cook with fresh ingredients of the highest quality, we can find or afford. So, I was clueless what this woman was talking about, when she told me that she makes her parrot food from scratch. Curious as I am, I looked up the meaning of the word SCRATCH. And I found “score, gash, scrape, rasp, wound, lacerate, deface, erase, withdraw, reject, scribble, scrawl, irritate, and sputter”. Or “made from scratch derives from a line or mark drawn or scratched into the ground to indicate a boundary or starting-point in sports”.

Why do Americans mean scratch are fresh ingredients? Not one of these words sound like something to eat to me. What am I missing?
