Sprouting and Soaked seed mixes for Parrots are available under food.
Instructions for sprouting PARROT seeds are provided with the seed mixes we sell.
This is the Sprouter that we use on a regular basis here at the PRC. For Parrot sprouting and soaked seed using this Sprouter, we recommend a maximum of 500g of dried seed soaked in a bowl for 8 hours and then rinsed and spread out into the 3 sprouter compartments, then they will need to be rinsed every 8 hours and should be ready for use within 48 hours. This amount will give you atleast 70 tablespoons of sprouts at the end, so this sprouter is great for those that have lots of birds. You can use less dried seed to start, but we do not recommend going over 500g. The sprouts can be refrigerated for a few days after.
If you only have a couple of birds then we recommend the Sprouter Glass, see Related products.
