What to do with unwanted seed

So what do I do with uneaten seeds?

All of my birds started on seeds. Not my choice but that's the way life is. I give them fresh veg, fruit, pellets and some seed. The seed mix is what we get here in Australia as parrot/wild bird mix. Usually it is corn kernels, safflower, red millet, wheat and sunflower seed. Some variation seasonally but generally its the same.

Not one of the birds eat anything but the wheat and the sunflower. The rest of the seeds just go to waste. I can't toss them out into the yard for the wild birds as we have major issues with mice in my town.

I've tried sprouting them with no real success. For some reason no matter how well I keep them rinsed they end up furry.

Any suggestions from anyone?
