Default Peanut/Adzuki Beans Sprouts?

I have 2 sprouting legume mixes that contain peanuts & adzuki beans. Are these safe for budgies? The peanuts would be too big to eat, but he could eat off the sprouts or maybe bite off chunks.

Peanuts are safe to eat, but like you mentioned, they are probably too big for your budgie to eat. Peanuts don't tend to get a large sprout tail on them either, so they may go completely untouched by your birds.

Adzuki beans are safe as well. Personally though, I stopped buying them because none of my birds will touch them.

Even sprouted, peanuts may have a little too much fat for little budgies, but they are safe, as mentioned, even if getting a beak in might be hard

I hope that Chitiv likes his sprouts!

I'll pick out the peanuts from the mix--not that many, & if he doesn't like the adzuki beans he will leave them behind & they'll get composted. He loves his seed sprouts from another mix now but wouldn't touch them for a week. The first time he started to eat them, he kept looking at me as if he was proud of himself.

"Look mummy! Look at me! I ate all my sprouts, see!?" I'm so glad he likes eating his sprouts
