Using Canary Seed To Grow Fresh Grass For Canary Food

Regarding canaries making a mess with their seeds: I have moved my birds feeding dish to the floor of the cage.
Now all the trash stays inside as the cage has deep sides. But I have also blown off the hulls.
Also, when I clean the cage I pour all the seed and hulls into a large pan of potting soil and sprout the seed, takes 3 days and he loves them. I pick them and cut off the roots and put them in a special dish, not in his seed dish.
Thanks Jackie. I'm sure you're doing this already but for others who have a messy canary---> If you put the seed dish on the floor of the cage just make sure it's not under a perch where it can collect feces.
I love the idea of sprouting the extra seed...No waste!
