Identification of seed needed
    #1574090 - 05/24/03 06:07 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I've never owned pet birds and the grains I've bought are from a pet store without fancy brands on the bags. Just a price tag, nothing more. The seed I bought was as close to the last lot I got. That's now used and in colonization. :smile:

So I'm wondering what exactly are these seeds? I know the millet is the light brown to tan coloured seeds, but what's the orange and dark ones? TIA

i dont know what they are either but
anything that has a shell (like a sunflower seed)
should be removed because they can harbour contams.

Quite contrary - seeds with shells are better because they don't clump together and such spawn is easier to shake. Sunflower seeds are not good because they have a high levels of fats not because of shells!

Looking about on the net, appears the small orange seeds are also millet. The dark ones, no idea. Not that it's a prob, the good ol'white stuff chews through it.

Thanks for the input folks.
