WBS help????
    #2360407 - 02/20/04 07:06 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

when using the WBS tek, what kind of bird seed is the best to use, or what kind should i not use?
I bought some "spray millet" I was curious if it was ok to use in place of the WBS, or if spray millet was even OK to use. I couldnt find any regular millet at my local pet store.
any info helps...some tips or direction would be nice.
thanks

List the ingredients. They should be on the back.

Like this?



You will have to separate the kernels from the stalk, but it should work, I guess.

Spray millet as in treated millet?

If its treated thats not a good thing.

jphilly,

Why use just millet? My friend always uses penningtons finch food (plain old bag of birdseed) which is comprised of mainly unhulled millet, and other goodies. Not too many sunflower seeds either, which many say aren't a good thing. An equal number of people will tell you sunflower seeds in your substrate doesnt matter. :smile: My friend has never had a problem with sunflower seeds in WBS, or plain old bird seed for that matter.

your right, no one has had any luck with birdseed here.  :rolleyes: :lol:
If there is something wrong with penningtons, me and a million other people havent seen it. ...but there are the people that do get contams with birdseed, and anything else.

I know that some bags of penningtons have birdkote that easily washes off... so that hasnt been a problem

I know that penningtons has very few sunflower seeds... overall good because there arent too many. I have heard debate over the oil in the sunflower seeds acting as a time-released supplement, and then there is lignin (sp?) too which may be benificial.

I already know about the pros/cons of using plain millet to bird seed... and no matter what you use, if the correct steril environment is obtained both during initial substrate sterilization, and innoculation you can limit your risks of contams.

...so what am I missing? Is there some sort of evil super contam that lives in birdseed that I, and hundreds of others have amazingly overcome?  :shiftyeyes:

I agree with Alounacara. :smile: and I get your point about the additives. I guess I just havent seen the difference between using natual millet, and bagseed with birdcoat that has been washed off. Either way, they are both good shit!
Anno saves the day.

Is WBS that has white proso millet, red proso millet, black oil sunflower seed, shelled peanuts, canary seeds, black striped sunflower seed, and vegetable oil (dust control agent) good??

Note: Ingredients are written exactly as shown on back of bag
