Yes I love the smell of them! They're in my room and I sniff them occasionally.
I'm sprouting alfafa and quinoa, plus the store bought mix with millet and I just love watching them grow into tiny little blossoms of awesomeness :p

I love that too! It's turned into a teaching lesson with my daughter too and she's super interested in watching new mixes sprout.

My rats actually adore sprouts too. More than the birds! The birds still actually prefer their chop to sprouts. Weirdos :lol:

Does anyone else love the way they smell? I find myself sniffing the jar through the whole process after the initial soak. I'm glad I finally found a mix both I and the fids enjoy also.

My birds absolutely LOVE their sprouts. AND, it's good that they smell so good, because we need to smell them everyday to make sure they are still good. My boys are not crazy about veggies but they love their sprouts.

Have you tried adding sprouts to a chop slowly increasing the veggies in the chop?
