Do you grow millet for your birds? I plant some seed every year and
end up sharing a lot of it with the wild birds. I have no problem
sharing (I love watching the little guys alight and try to keep their
balance on a spray of millet) but I have noticed that the millet
doesn't look as pretty as the millet I buy in the pet stores.
For seed I use the little pieces of millet in the bottom of the jar.
Should I be using seed raised for planting a crop? Is spray millet
some kind of hybrid like most eating corn? What am I doing wrong?
My fear is that commercial growers use something to protect the crops.
Does the rule with fruit apply here?: if it looks good and is blemish-free,
the grower has used pesticides. Does anybody here know how the commercial
millet is raised?
