Deli Nature 82 Germination Seed Canary

Deli Nature 82 Germination Seed Canary is a very varied and rich sprouting seed mixture with seeds which have a high germinative capacity. The mix is perfect for providing protein for breeding birds, and as part as a varied every day diet.

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.
