This is in my bean soaking mix:
Soya, Aduki, Mung, Pinto, Blackeye, Haricot Beans, Corn Chick, Grean and Yellow Peas, Puy and Red Lantils, Wheat, Brown Rice
Be mindful tht certain foods like some beans and potatoes can not be fed raw they must be cooked.
For the other soaking mix I use:
Mountain Ash Berries, Sultanas, Cut Maize, Diced Pineapple, Groats, Elder Berries, Juniper Berries, Rosehips, Banana Chips, Coconut, Flaked Green Peppers, Flaked Red Peppers, Hulled Sunflower Kernels, Hulled Pumpkin Kernels, Diced Papaya, Diced Carrots, Diced Swede, Cut Green Beans, Garden Peas, Flaked Tomato and Fresh Water Shrimps.
That one doesn't get cooked, it can also be fed dry.
The seed mixes I use changes everytime as I just buy various ones and mix them together, I haven't yet found a good base mix I am happy with to be honest and having 6 birds that eat it it is very expensive to keep buying small bags lol.
If he eating throughout the day don't worry about his crop bulging, they don't as adults and with his feathers you won't really notice it. Feed him his nighttime feed for the next couple of weeks and see how he gets on. Then start cutting down on the amount you feed him till you can cut it out completly.
There is no real time frame for this however it totally depends on the bird, you don't want to cut all feedings out at this stage as he could revert.
