My linnie and my green cheek both eat TOP pellets, so that could happen. My green cheek actually will eat any size pellets, but she doesn't like anything with dyes in it. She is a health food nut.
TOP is trying out a new Crumplets - I think that's the name. It is chopped up.
My green cheek will eat anything healthy, and any size pellet, but all of my birds except the green cheek will leave the pellets over the bowl and eat that way so that the crumbs drop down into the bowl and they can go back and eat the broken pieces. She absolutely refuses to eat like that if she can walk away from the dish and eat. That doesn't hurt anything, but it means she wastes a lot of each pellet, expecially the TOP pelletd, due to their size and consistency. Soooooooooooo - I give her the crumplets whenever I have them, because she wastes lots less that way.
The linnie will eat the regular size TOP pellets, but I think she likes the crumplets better. At any rate, she eats pretty much anything healthy, too.
I love sprouting seeds. I hope you do, too, when you try it.
Don't buy a special size pellet for your green cheek unless you find it absolutely won't eat what the linnie eats. They are such a great size they can handle most anything.
