Question Dry vs. Sprouted Grains?

Hello,

I've read on this forum that grains such as oat groats and barley are especially high in protein and should be fed to budgies sparingly in case too much protein will be too taxing on their reproductive organs and might cause health issues.

So how about sprouted oat groats and barley? Would they be healthier instead? Can I feed them more than the regular?

My understanding is that sprouts have less fat, but I'm getting mixed information on protein levels.

All in all, the situation is this: I have a bunch of sprouted barley and oats in the refrigerator and I don't want them to go to waste.

If any body who has some knowledge about sprouting can help me that would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Sincerely,

James

I noticed you never got an answer to your question.
Sprouted grains spoil very fast and I would not feed them to budgies.
I wonder what you did with the ones you had.

I feed my budgie sprouts. They're great! You do have to make fresh batches often, though. I usually feed sprouts first thing in the morning and switch them out for dry seed later in the day.

I feed Banana sprouts. I've never had a problem with them spoiling. Sprouts are really good for budgie!

This is a really good thread about sprouting
