Growing Plants Indoors

After spending a day outdoors I also took a look at the plants I have growing indoors. The Cilantro has started growing real leaves. I can't wait to share a few with my Green Cheek conures. They love spicy greens. And I love salsa.

They also love sprouted wheat. After only 8 hours of soaking the birds are ready to eat them. Most seeds eaten by birds out of doors are already sprouted. That means their nutritional value is at its peak. That makes for healthy birds. One tip I've learned that I'll share with you is that it's best to sprout only one type of seed or bean at a time. Beans must be cooked or sprouted to be safe for birds.
