Not camera shy, this German Roller is first to eat sprouted seed! Sprouted seed is an excellent way to introduce seeds.
This shot shows a deep chest and gives me great hope that he will be an excellent singer!
In just a few bites, other rollers join in the feast.
During the weaning phase, my sprouting mix has a high percentage of millet. Millet being a high carbohydrate seed helps to balance the protein in the diet.

Am I right Linda?
The mix has wheat but no hulled oats. The rest is correct.
When it is time for the baby molt, I will increase rape on yellow colored birds as it is a very good coloring agent.
I was quite surprised today to find one of my 27-day-old chicks feeding happily away on a millet spray (unsprouted). I'm a novice breeder so am still feeling out what's normal and what's not. Is millet a relatively soft-shelled seed or do I have an extremely precocious chick?
Linda, how do you treat "slip claw" on a weaning youngster?
