Re: Feeding hemp seeds?

They sell hulled hemp seeds in the bulk section at my local health food store. They are super healthy (and yummy) for humans too. :-)

I'm wondering why you say they should be fed occasionally and not daily. I always put a pinch in with their fresh food. I have been doing it daily but now I'm wondering if it is a mistake.

Re: Feeding hemp seeds?

I started feeding this to my new 30yo YNA. When I got him I took him to the vet for a checkup, he's in good shape even though his previous diet was bad. Iron level was low..hemp has 45% iron. So when I told the vet what I was doing she felt it was perfect and that between this and the better diet he get's he'll be fine.
I also get ground hemp to add to birdie bread.
Check out www.nuts.com
That's where I get mine..maybe they sell bigger bags.

Re: Feeding hemp seeds?

I get hemp seed for myself at the natural food store. It's like $1.19 a lb. hulled.
I plan to share with Dexter when he's weaned.

That seems to effect their fiber content some what but more so in hulled seeds. The unhulled seeds that i get are pricier than sunflower seeds but better fats.I'm sure if i can find the 25 lb bags locally that the price would be a lot better.Have you tried them before? Can you get them in your area? PS the cockatiels went through them like "Sherman through Georgia".

Has he learned to say, "It's 4:20!" Yet?
