Sunflower seeds in this blend so I mixed 50-50 with the micro grain blend they are crazy for it but too much fat

Awesome thread! BTW, fat content of sprouted seeds is much lower than unsprouted. From this study:

“The fat content of sprouted cowpea decreased significantly when compared to its unsprouted counterparts in all three genotypes. Decrease in fat content may be due to depletion of the fat stored that contributed to the catabolic activities of the seeds during sprouting (Onimawo and Asugo 2004). Kornberg and Beevers (1957).”

Sprouting is a great example of a miracle. All the good things increase and all the bad things decrease.
 

Sparkles!

Do they enjoy extra sprouty sprouts? Mine love when the growth is a bit longer! They throw out all the beans though. I swear we could feed a country just on the beans we toss out onto the floor.

Perfect timing; I googled what felt like hundreds of sprouted seeds and got overwhelmed. Now I’ll just order Avian Organics. When in doubt, check out what the AA experts do : )
