    Alfalfa Leaf helps assimilate protein, calcium and other nutrients. Contains chlorophyll. Richest land source of trace minerals. Very rich supply of Beta Carotene, Vitamins K and D. High in Calcium and contains Phosphorus, Iron, Potassium and eight essential enzymes. It is also high in fructo-oligosaccarides which fertilize healthy bacteria in the gut and neutralize bad bacteria overgrowth such as Candida.


    Can anybody give any information on where they are ok as sprouts, if one can get hold of viable seeds.

    I have given my birds flax seed, alfalfa, cinnamon and a few others on the list, but where can you buy these ? Do you get the jars in the spice isle in the grocery store, like garlic powder? Not trying to be thick, but not all cinnamon is real cinnamon for example , how do you know it's safe for your birds??

    Thanks for useful information. I have also used a few herbs for cuts and birds stress also. My cutie loves to eat chickweed, ginger and green pepper.

    So I use this company for all of my spice needs. Though I grow quite a few of my own this company is amazing. They will grind your spices for you if you want them too. They are not overly expensive and based out of Seattle. Amazing customer service. You can call right to the shop if want to speak to a store employee.
