use Wild Bird Seed then. IF you wanna case it use it straight up, if you wanna make cakes then id recommend grinding it into flour and doing it as a PF tek

no thats not casing, go read up on casing. alright just checking about the perlite. and once again try the pf-tek for your first time easy to start with.
