Either I think, but for some odd reason AFOAF has an easier time with birdseed.  Rye though does seem to colonize rapidly... so I hate to say it but there may be tie between the two :smile:

It seems to me that rye is more forgiving than is birdseed. The main problem some have experieced with both is anerobic bacteria. Since birdseed is smaller in size than rye seed it lends itself more to the contam problem. Also, most commercial, easy to find birdseed (read hulled millet) is often coated with anti-fungal crap and also some kind of nutrient stuff that can mess with things. Rye tends to be just cleaner and is easily found in organic stores which deserve support just because while birdseed is often at Walmart who are big fat bastards.....

Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have.

So far they seem to be about the same to me. Birdseed is cheaper though.
