Ideal also for soaking - see details below;

Soaking; You should first rinse the seeds well using a sieve, then put the rinsed seed in a container with fresh water, (the water level should be 2 or 3 times the height of seed, as they will expand as they absorb the water), and allow to soak overnight. I would strongly advise that a water sanitiser such as aviclens or Vanodine is used while soaking, just a few drops are required to prevent harmful bacteria. Rinse thoroughly the next day then provide to the birds in a dish. Disregard any uneaten soak seed that evening / next morning.

Sprouting; As above but then spread out in a jar or sprouter. Leave them out of direct sun light and ideally at a temperature of 18-21 deg C. (65-70 deg F.) Too high a temperature can lead to the growth of bacteria and moulds. Rinse again at least twice daily along with a water sanitiser until the seeds have germinated, which for many seeds takes just a couple of days. Sprouts have the highest protein and vitamin values when the tip of the root first appears and levels decline as the shoot gets longer. Once sprouted, the seeds can be kept in the refrigerator for a couple of days. But be ure to discard them if they start to smell sour or go mouldy.

My Parakeets love these soaked or sprouted during the breeding season.
