All right! I have spent the last 12 hours researching all the methods of sprouting seeds and beans (thank heaven for youtube!)
I'll admit I got a little side-tracked into aeroponics and indoor herb gardens, but I think I've ended up with an understanding of something that I can 1) Consider a "leaf bath" (ok, not really leaves at all)
and 2) Place in a basket/perch for purposes of weighing my bird, and best of all, 3) Actually do on a regular basis because it is basically "put water in a bin and wait a few days."
Please remember, I currently have no bird, and no garden, so this is the perfect
time to point out all the things I am doing wrong/the hard way.
Also, if it helps, you can be reassured that I work from home and will not go broke for spending 12 hours a day surfing youtube and pinterest.
So, yes. It's grass. It's edible
grass, but do I really want my bird eating his bath...grass? Maybe I've gotten a little lost, around hour 8. Would a parrot love to forage/frolic in this sort of field? On a smaller scale, obviously. I am totally cool with throwing out the breakfast carpet after playtime. I do still want the bird to be light enough to sit on my shoulder! I haven't got the skills yet for actual herb gardening, this is something I can handle.
ps. I seriously didn't know that those grains (wheat!) sprouted into grass! Also I am totally going to try to sprout the birdseed from the store, now. Doesn't matter that I don't have a bird yet, this science stuff is finally interesting!
Is it wheat, or grass?
