TONIC SEED MIX - 475g - AW BIRDS - OILY SEEDS FOR CHICK GROWTH - SOAK - FINCHES / CANARIES

TONIC MIX - 475g - AW BIRDS - OILY SEEDS FOR STRONG CHICK GROWTH - IDEAL FOR SOAKING / SPROUTING

I have been breeding birds for over 9 years and I have found this to be the best Tonic mix. Tonic seeds are essential in the weaning process to provide strong and healthy chicks as most young birds are unable to break open the shells of hard seeds until 5 weeks plus. These are soft oily seeds which make it easier for chicks to eat. Tonic Mix can be provided dry, soaked or sprouted. It is ideal for small birds such as Foreign Finches like Gouldians, Zebra's and Bengalese Finches, also Canaries.

Ideally soaked / sprouted seed as well as a soft eggfood should be provided once or twice a day to chicks!
Note: Sometimes the rape can be red or black and when there is 475g worth the lighter seeds drop to the bottom and it just depends how the seeds fall which can make it look different to the photo.

Includes Blue Maw, Red Rape, Black Rape, Niger.

DRY OR SOAKED
Amino acids Methionine and Lysine, which are essential for reproduction Sulfa producing amino acids, essential for quality feather growth for baby chicks

SOAKED OR SPROUTED
They also provide two essential supplements for chicks - E Powder and FVite

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 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.
