Sunflower seeds float, most other grains in birdseed don't. How convenient is that? Just skim off the offending flotsam if you prefer. If not, just leave them be. I've never noticed an appreciable difference either way.

I colonized pure sunflower seeds with azures. I thought I'd try it because of the woody nature of the hulls. It worked but I added way too much water before pressure cooking. Sunflower seeds don't absorb much water compared to grains.

I was wondering about using sunflower seeds for azures, do you think maybe if you just soak them for 24 hours and drain that maybe they would work well for it?

I just keep the sunflower seeds in. Why you might ask, because I'm lazy and they haven't caused any problems.

I leave them in for two reasons, 1) I, like new name, am lazy as well :wink: and 2)  I was told by someone wiser and older than I that the husks provide a great source of lignin.  This quote was made by Sixtango  "There is no need to remove any floating husks, or sunflower seeds. These add lignin ( a good thing) & do not harbor any more possible contams than does the millet. It is all going to get thoroughly sterilized - anyway. " 

But to tell you the truth, I'm really unsure of this whole debate, and will be experimenting in the future.  :grin:

Well it seems to me the conclusion to this great debate could be that it doesn't matter! Sunflower seeds dont do any harm. :tongue:

Hey man, I appreciate you support, I really do, but ^^^^ is right, I'm not completely sure of the adverse effects of sunflower seeds, with that said, I can tell you that of all the birdseed that I've done that I don't really see anything wrong with keeping the sunflower seeds in the mix.  But for now, I'm riding the fence and not advising either way.  Tomato/tomahto :grin:
