Mid Bird is another lovely mix. This one has 32 seeds - all from sources which are certified organic. Both you and your flock will appreciate its beauty and how easy it is to sprout. As we've said, the name of the mix indicates the relative size of the seeds in that mix. Our avian advisors assure us that any size bird can enjoy any of our mixes. A smaller bird will just take longer to eat a larger seed, while a bigger bird will chow down the little seeds faster.

  • Can't get your bird to eat his veggies? Try Sprouts!
    My Greys have gotten sprouts regularly for the last 7 years. They will even try to raid the EasySprouter if they're on the counter when it's sprouting! Sprouts provide the kind of real-world, living nutrition that we can't provide parrots in a pellet or even in a varied fresh fruit/veggie diet, and the mid-bird mix helps get a lot of varied nutrients into their bodies. This is what birds "forage" for in the real world. If you've ever given your bird some carrots or broccoli and been dismayed because most or all of it gets tossed on the ground, try sprouts! Keep in mind, Sprouts ARE vegetables, they're even SUPER vegetables!

    I like to use the mid-bird mix as a base and add some extra black oil sunny's to the mix - they'll eat all their sprouts but the Sunny's always get devoured first :) Tip: I sprout until I just see a tail poking out. My birds seem to find these the tastiest, and if you're having trouble converting a bird to sprouts, the less "Tail" they see the more they think it looks like a plain old seed - trust me though, it only takes one bite of that plump moist seed before they realize they have hit the food jackpot!

    Important Note: Sprouts provide so much great nutrition that it may be advisable to limit feeding to 2-3 times a week as a "main" meal. Check with your vet if you have a concern. High-potency nutrition tends to trigger hormonal breeding behavior in birds because they are at their healthiest to produce great offspring, and that's not usually desirable for pet parrots. A daily diet of sprouts would likely be great for a parrot breeding program and/or egg production.

  • Gorgeous Sprouts My Parrots were Thrilled
    I recently found your products I'm new to sprouting. The reviews on your site really encouraged me to give your product a try.

    Super easy to sprout, my parrots all love the variety.

    So glad to have found you.

  • Great for Laying Hens!
    We feed this as treats to our laying hens. Our birds are average size hens. On cold winter days and during molting, i mix up some warm oatmeal and mix in some sprouts, fresh fruit and a few dried meal worms and they LOVE IT! In the spring and summer it's a welcome snack while I am out gardening and they are in the yard foraging for bugs. They LOVE these sprouts. Nice blend not too many large seeds but lots of variety for a healthy diet. I get excellent healthy eggs from my hens. They are happy and this is their favorite treat right up there with live meal worms! YUM! (if you are a chicken). We ALWAYS have a mason jar in the window sill above the kitchen sink growing sprouts for our birds.

    Thank you for such a wonderful product that is affordable enough for us to provide on a regular basis to our little flock of egg layers! Edith, Mary, Sybil, Mrs. Patmore and I thank you!

  • Great for those birds who like to think they're big!
    My Peachfaced Lovebird loves this mix. He has Little Bird Syndrome and while it takes him a bit more effort to eat the bigger sprouts, he enjoys every bit of it.

    Thank you SO much for giving us this much variety. This is an easy way to get your feathered friend the nutrition and variety he or she needs.

  • My Parrotlets LOVE this stuff
    Even though they are "little birds" they were not eating the smallest seeds/sprouts found in the little bird mix, so I continue to order this mix. Without fail they go for the sunflower, wheat, and oats first, but they also munch on the other sprouts as well. 48-36 hours after throwing this into the Easy Sprouter I have 2 very happy little birds.

  • Super Happy Ekkie
    I have been buying these for my eclectus parrot for about a year now. He loves them. The company is great, the shipping is fast, and the seed quality and mix is awesome. The prices are also great for the amount and the variety of seeds. I will never buy sprouting seeds from anywhere else. :)

  • She likes it!
    My newly adopted Blue & Gold Macaw seems to like it. I offered her some of what I grew for the cat and dog and she didn't care for either of those.

  • Happy 'Zons!
    My three amazons have been on sprouted seed for over 4 years. They are used to the sprouted mixes I have used. For the mid bird mix, they literally would have their beaks in the bowls as I put them in their cages. I add fresh veggies, supplements, and a wee bit of fruit to the sprouted mix. Now, instead of going for the veggies first, they are "beak-down" in the sprouts! Great stuff!

  • My Quaker LOVES this mix!
    My quaker parrot is fairly young and always hesitant about new things. It was so cute watching her try this mix for the first time. At first she studied it, then she nibbled, then oh boy was she a happy birdy. She sang for the rest of the day!

  • Happy birds!
    I feed my 5 birds Mid-Bird sprouts in rotation with fresh fruit, veggies, cereals, nuts, eggs/ cheese-dairy/ meat, and a dry seed mix. . I have 2 parakeets, 2 sun conures, a green cheek and a nanday conure, and a cockatiel. Sprouts were a great addition to their diet. The sprouting kit makes it easy to prepare this treat. I know their "happy bird" sounds, and I definitely hear them when it's "sprouts day!"

  • Just started sprouting for your fid?
    I started sprouting about six months ago when I acquired a neglected, malnourished, plucked Eclectus parrot.
    After MUCH trial and error, money and wasted sprouts, I just wanted to let other bird lovers out there know that these are the sprouts that my birds eat and LOVE. I've tried both mid bird sprouts and big bird sprouts. My Ekkie's beak goes into the bowl and comes out many minutes later covered in sprout remnants. With other sprouts and mixes I've tried,I just don't get that kind of enthusiasm.
    So, if you're new to sprouting for your parrot don't waste your time and money, just buy these. As a side note, I keep TOPS organic pellets in both my bird's cages all the time. Since I've started feeding sprouts the pellets go pretty much untouched and they both are happy and healthy birds!
    Happy Sprouting!

  • My Blue Crowned Conure and Budgies love this seed mix.
    My favorite thing about this mix is it contains 32 different seeds which would be time consuming and expensive to replicate at home. My Blue Crowned Conure and Budgies all enjoy this mix.
