Question on sprouts

I have finally decided to add sprouts to Elvis's diet. Any of you experienced sprouters? Is there any site I can purchase a sprouting kit and sprouts that you recommend? Or I would also try doing it myself with some advice. Thanks.

I buy my bird sprouting mix from... Www.wheatgrasskits.com they have mostly human sprouts but make one that can be fed dry or soaked or sprouted for birds. I also bought my easy sprouter from them and it really is easy.

Question on sprouts

You can sprout any seed, really, as long as its still live - meaning not totally dried out. Whole foods sometimes has sprout or high quality seed/nut mixes but usually it's cheaper to buy online in my experience

We were excited too! I really liked them, I used to eat as much of it as the birds did I really need to get back into making it, between both moves though I don't even know where the kit is!
