My Partner Greg agrees with you but i just wanted to try it but every time I try to do it, it ends up smelling a bit and I through it out because i don't want to make my birds sick.
He also reckons that egg effects there liver or kidney one orthe other, so I don't know

Soft food I use: boiled eggs mashed, soaked polenta, grated carrot/apple, eggs shells I dry after boiling the eggs then grind them up and mix them in too. I know someone who soaks mungbeans, 1st grade wheat and grey sunflowers and adds to the mix.
I also use Triticale soaked,
My seed mix has a big range of seeds in it. will add pic as I dont know all of them!! Not just the usual budgie mix you get at petshops/stockfeeds. I add turbobooster to the seed/soaked seed, Fvite powder in small containers in the aviary. (Marshalls)
When you are soaking your seed add avicleans to the water it prevents mould and stops bacteria (which is I guess why it gets smelly. Soak for 12 hours then drain in airy container overnight. (this is for mungbeans and such)
Where abouts are you?
I am in Nathalia Victoria, where do you buy mung beens, I do use avicleans. thanks for your advice.
