Sprout mix for parrotlets?
Dear "parronts"! ☺️
I hope you guys can help me with a few questions I have, about sprouting seeds for parrotlets. ☺️
I'm looking for a good sprout mix for my two female parrotlets; Nikki 13, and Leeloo 10 years. ☺️
I really want the nutritional value of the sprout mix to include all the vitamins, minerals, proteins, etc. that a parrotlet needs every day.
I live in Denmark, so unfortunal the market for buying sprouted seeds for parrots, is sadly very poor. ☺️
But I think that I've finally found a sprout mix on a danish website, that I think looks very good! ☺️
I would really appreciate it, if you guys could help me, and tell me what you think about the sprout mix I've found, - if it's good or bad for parrotlets, please. ☺️
The sprout mix is from a brand called "AviSeed", and it contains these ingredients: ☺️
Cardi (safflower), green peas, Kadjang Idjoe (mungbeans), what, Dunpeas, Brown peas (Pigeon peas), Buckwheat, Yellow peas, Lentils, White Dari, Milo, Red Dari, Yellow millet, Japanese millet, Barley, Sesame seeds.
- What do you guys think, would that be a good and healthy sprout mix to give my sweethearts?.. ☺️
I've always read that sunflower seeds is way to fatty for parrotlets!
But I'm actually thinking about adding a few extra sunflower seeds in the sprout mix to.
- And I'll tell you why; ☺️
Recently I've been told by a danish avian vet, that if you sprout sunflower seeds, all the fat transforms into healthy proteins in stead..!
So sunflower should'nt be bad, but actually very healthy for parrotlets!
- as long as the seeds is sprouted.☺️
- Have you guys ever heard of that?!..
- Nikki and Leeloo ☺️
I've attached a picture of the sprout mix ☺️
