One day, I asked a bird food seller, what bird seeds can gain birds’ weight. He introduced me sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, and canary seeds. I were curious, besides gaining weight, what other benefits of canary seeds for birds? I summarize the findings as below from various websites. Small and medium sized parrots love canary seeds, but it is not suitable for large parrots because the size of seeds is too small for them. Canary seeds is high in fat, don’t treat it as regular meal for your birds.
Some friends asked me how to grow wheat grass (cat grass) for their birds. The method of planting wheatgrass is actually very simple, no matter by water or soil. I am going to introduce you the water-planting (hydroponics) method. I like water-planting because it is much more easier and convenient than soil-planting. You can even have harvest in just a few days. Growing your own wheatgrass is healthier for your birds because the grass is fresh and grown without chemicals. Wheatgrass seeds can be found in the shops/places where are selling plants.
