Nutrition of Oat Sprouts

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know the nutrition of Oat sprouts (ie protein, amino acids, vitamins and minerals)  I have searched around a lot online and I cant seem to find it.  I started sprouting oats for my chickens but did not know what kind of nutrition it was providing.

thanks

I will have to check with my mom. but I do know that sprouts are really good for you and your birds, they have a higher nutritional value than adult plants.

Iam gonna start sprouting for my chickens this winter as an experiment.If I can find the grains so far 50lbs of wheat is not to be found this year.I can get oats so it might be what Iam using.Bird seed too.
