Bad smell with Finch seed
    #601959 - 04/08/02 07:04 AM (21 years, 10 months ago)

This is the first time that I have used Finch seed as a substrate. I just put them in an inccubation chamber 3-4 days ago. I have noticed a odd smell coming from my closet and today when I checked on them I noticed I have one jar that is almost covered with thin white all over the jar. It kind of looks like the start of mycillium but this is the only jar that has anything noticable on it and it is all over the jar so this leads me to think it is suspect for contamination. Also this jar gives off a real odd oder that somewhat smells like spoiled milk. Is this a contam or is everything ok and Finch seed just smells? Any input is appreciated.

Don't smell it anymore, just toss the damn thing on a plastic bag, double close and trash it. It's probably bacterial contam, good stuf always smells good.

My friends finch seed sometimes smells too, it smells a bit 'farty'. Even so, it goes on to colonise and fruit no problem.
Keep an eye on it, and put it away from the others if poss, if not put it in a ziplock.
Finchseed contams easily she has found, usually bacteria. This always looks slimey, with excessive moisture in it, kinda like milky coffee in the bottom of the jar.

If you're worried, chuck it.

Good luck

This is the most common form of contamination I have run into w. birdseed, the slimy milky coffee looking stuff that dream a trix described. could someone explain what the most likely cause of this is, so that I can eradicate it in my jars, or is this just bad luck and unavoidable. Any tips!?!?!? Thanks!!!!
