How to sprout seeds for parrots
Beginning this process in the evening is usually the easiest! Start by pouring your dry organic sprouts for parrots into your sprouting jar, being mindful of how many birds you have. We suggest a few teaspoons per bird, but never filling more than a quarter of the jar in total.
Apply the mesh lid to the jar and begin by thoroughly washing the seeds, filling the jar with water and pouring it out several times. If you don't have a sprouting jar, wash your seeds in a sieve over the sink for a couple of minutes. Empty all of the water from the jar and apply 2-3 drops of grape seed extract to the top of the seeds and then fill the jar with water again. Leave the submerged seeds for 8 to 12 hours, or overnight.
In the morning, empty the water through the mesh lid into the sink, and proceed to wash the organic sprouting mix by filling with water and emptying the jar several times until the water runs clear. Drain out as much water from the jar as possible, and rest it over a drip tray at an angle to prevent water from sitting in the sprouts causing them to rot. Keep the jar in a dark environment, or cover with a jar sleeve to prevent too much light entering the environment. Over the next two to three days, thoroughly wash and rinse the sprouts every 3-4 hours. This important process prevents the build up of bacteria and mould which could prove fatal to your birds if ingested.
After day one you should start seeing tiny tails appear out of some of the seeds, and by day three the tails will be around 1cm in length. This indicates that the sprouting process is complete! Give your sprouts one final wash and rinse, drain as much water as possible and store in the fridge for up to a week. Add a few spoon fulls of our organic sprouts for parrots to your bird's fresh food every day for a huge boost in nutrients!
Is feeding sprouts to parrots dangerous?
Sprouts for parrots are one of the most nutritious foods you can possibly offer, and are just as healthy and nutritious for humans to consume to! If you carefully and scrupulously follow the above instructions then sprouts are not dangerous and you will only see the wonderful benefits of offering this nutrient dense food to your parrot's diet.
If you choose not to follow our instructions, and mould or bacteria is allowed to grow in your sprouting environment, then yes, feeding rotting food to your parrots can prove fatal.
When you order our Organic Sprouting Mixes for parrots you will receive an instruction card that you can keep, and stick to the fridge. Be sure to refer back to this whenever you need support with sprouting.
