Hi Melli & Flock!
There's a safe spice list here:

There's Sprouting info here: (green areas@top)

I'm so sorry it's taken so long for me to respond. I use dried spices but I know in some cases that many members use fresh. Now you have to be careful w/ spices & parrots because some can cause issues. I know about having to use organic Ceylon Cinnamon because of everyone here. There is something in regular, cheap Cinnamon that acts as a toxin in parrots, I forgot what it's called... Begins w/ a C. It's been written here a bunch, the logic is if it says Cinnamon & doesn't say Ceylon assume it's the cheap stuff & find Ceylon. Ceylon still has this C. toxin but it's miniscule in comparrison.Thank you! Do the spices need to be fresh or do you use the dried spices?
