Versele Laga Parrot Germination Seeds

*** SPECIAL ORDER ITEM - please allow up to 21 days for delivery ***

Versele Laga Parrots Germination Mix is to be used for soaking or germination. The seed mix is specially selected to achieve germination of all seeds in roughly the same time frame.

Preparation

To soak:

  • Rinse the seeds well under running water 
  • In any suitable container (keeping in mind that the seed will increase in volume as it soaks / sprouts), add plenty of water, at least three times the volume of seed.   
  • Use warm (not hot) water to improve germination speed (if desired)  
  • Add GSE (grapefruit seed extract) or another water sanitiser (e.g. Birdcare Aviclens) to help prevent unwanted fungal or bacterial growth. 
  • Allow soaking for up to 24 hours at room temperature 
  • Rinse with plenty of cold running water 
  • Give as is or mixed with egg food or fruits and vegetables  

Alternatively, allow seed to germinate:

  • Automatic sprouter (see instructions on link)
  • Tray method 
    • Spread in a thin layer on a flat tray, adding just enough water to dampen the seeds, but not to cover them.   
    • Add GSE (grapefruit seed extract) or another water sanitiser (e.g. Birdcare Aviclens) to help prevent unwanted fungal or bacterial growth. 
    • Change the water a few times a day and allow to germinate for 1-2 days. 
  • Jar method 
    • Place in a jar, and cover with muslin or other porous cloth, secured in place of a lid.   
    • Add a small amount of water 
    • Add GSE (grapefruit seed extract) or another water sanitiser (e.g. Birdcare Aviclens) to help prevent unwanted fungal or bacterial growth. 
    • Turn the jar onto a 45-degree angle, with the opening facing downwards.   
    • The water should mostly drain from the jar but the atmosphere remains humid.   
    • Change the water a few times a day and allow to germinate for 1-2 days. 
    • Rinse with plenty of cold running water 

Give as is or mixed with egg food or fruits and vegetables  

Ideally, you should only soak and/or germinate enough to feed your birds for one day.  Do NOT soak or germinate a large quantity in advance for feeding over a few days unless it can be refrigerated in a sealed container.
