Which Seeds Can I Grow And Feed?

Recommended Posts

I have tried to grow budgie and cockatiel mix, but I don't know if I can actually feed it to them. There is millet, I think it's okay to feed, but then there is also canary seed, hemp, linseed, nigerseed, safflower, buckwheat, sorgho, sunflower, paddy rice, oats, yellow panicum.

 

Did you try to feed some of these plants? They love the grown millet, but I'm afraid to try the rest :wub:

I've just spread it in a pod and it's growing very nicely, but if some of it is not okay to feed as a plant, I'll only grow the ones that are safe :D

Whatever you are feeding them as seed, you can grow as a plant and feed to them. They will love you more :)

Don't worry, I think I'll take the sunflowers away anyway, they don't look good to eat :)

If your seed that you feed your birds do not sprout then change brands as it is n't good seed :)

dont tell many people that your growing hemp :P you might get some visitors when the plants have grown ;)

 

i planted sunflower and corn for the birds and have a small patch of garden where i throw the old seed to grow fresh seed heads.

Sunflower is okay for them. ;). Just make sure anything you grow you don't spray with pesticides (I know you won't but putting it out there).

 

In our FAQ we have food links too.
