    If you have these seeds and are willing to share, please let me know. I am looking for a plant to start feeding my flock.

    I've found sunflower seeds available for sale at almost every farm store, gardening store or big box store (like Wal-Mart).

    Have you tried those places?

    You can sprout seeds from any bag of bird feed. Or pick up cheap packets at local stores. Postage for shipping seeds would be more expensive than buying local.

    Sorry, to clarify I was looking for a variety that anyone had been working on that was larger than the Black Oil seeds. Sorry!

    Hey! We got a huge bag at Walmart for $10. We planted them not thinking many would come up. Oh my gosh they are thick as everything.
