Well, I'm trying to give the critters here a varied diet without spending more than I would just feeding their regular diet (maybe even save). Sprouted seeds are on my list of food items. While scanning for seeds to sprout, I thought about scratch grains. Scratch grain is less than half the price of bulk bird seed. But, would the sprouts be small enough for buttons and coturnix? I don't really want to spend extra time chopping seedlings up. Any other ideas for supplemental feedings would be much appreciated as well! I already plan to raise mealworms, flour beetles and fruit flies (flies more for the babies).
