Product Description

Millet Sprays are a treat relished by most birds, including wild and small birds such as Budgies, Parakeets and Finches to large Macaws, they are the dried seed heads of foxtail or finger millet, that grow at the end of a thin stalk, with small tuffs that extend from the sprays, that contain the millet seeds that are available from us in large 15kg bulk boxes, including Free UK Mainland Delivery!

Each tuff on the spray contains between 25 to 50 millet seeds, and a full millet spray depending on the variety purchased will be between 6 - 18 inches in length and contain hundreds or thousands of seeds, so you can imagine how many seeds a bulk box of millet sprays contains. Millet sprays can be cut to size and then attached to a birds cage or aviary, that are imported primarily from countries such as China, India, Korea and the USA.

Unlike some grains or cereals, millet is an extremely hardy, easy to grow, insect resistant crop and will happily grow in poor soil or arid conditions, that is also used by farmers especially in the USA for livestock feed, not just for birds as a complimentary treat for pet birds.

Parrots in particular, not only enjoy eating millet, but also like to shred the tuffs from the stalk, which is very entertaining to watch. Millet Spray is also useful to wean babies on and can encourage them to eat, for instance immature parrots can be fed millet spray that's been soaked in warm water, even though they have yet to peck at seeds!

Millet Sprays are gluten free and a rich source of vitamin B and trace metals, that are high in carbohydrate and low in fat, that contain approximately 10% protein and can be soaked, then allowed to sprout increasing their nutritional value, but it's important to wash the sprouted seeds before feeding them to your birds.

Millet spray is also beneficial for ill or convalescing birds and parrots, as many breeders report that by offering millet bird's are often encouraged to eat more at a time when they don't feel well, increasing their overall food intake.

Simply hang your millet sprays in your bird's cage or aviary and replace them as required, removing any stalks, empty seed heads and spray from the bottom of your cage, that could become contaminated by bird droppings.

Millet is a natural, nutritious, healthy treat that we recommend customers purchase for their birds, as it helps prevent boredom and improve the daily life of your cage or aviary birds! Millet sprays are suitable for the following small and medium cage and aviary birds, budgies, canaries, cockatiels, finches, lovebirds, parakeets and parrots.

Although you can now buy millet clusters for your birds, that have been removed from the spray or just the seed by itself, it's more natural for your birds to remove the millet from the heads themselves, so we recommend you always purchase sprays as a reward or treat to try and re-create a birds natural foraging instinct, rather than buy these fast food alternatives.

Due to customer demand we now sell millet sprays in economical 15kg boxes, that are normally broken down into smaller quantities by pet shops and resold in small bags, these large bulk boxes of millet spray are ideal for breeders and customers with large aviaries, allowing you to treat you birds more often, without worrying about the cost!
