    Seed & Sprouts Help!

    Can sprouted seeds fully replace normal dry seed mix in my bird's daily diet? It seems to me to be perfectly fine; better and healthier even. But I'd still like other people's opinions and knowledge. Thanks so much!

    Sprouted Lentils

    I read from lots of sources that sprouted seeds and grains are an excellent source of nutrition for birds so I got straight to work on sprouting my own! Then my sister came along and reminded me that the lentils I was sprouting were a source of protein!! I don't think it's as much as in eggs...
