This offering is for approximately 6 2/3 cups of sterilized hemp seed (approximately 2 lbs).
Hemp seed is higher in protein than many other kinds of seed. It is popular with bird fanciers as a supplemental food because of its nutritional value and because most caged birds love it. The 6 2/3 cups will yield approximately 958 half teaspoon servings.
Some hobbyists feed hemp seed dry; some soak it in water for up to 12 hours to soften it. If you decide to soak it, drain the water off after 12 hours and rinse the seed before feeding it. Refrigerate the water- softened seed in an airtight container. It will keep for 4 or 5 days. Dry hemp seed can be stored at room temperature, or refrigerated, or even frozen.
Because hemp seed is an easily digested form of protein it is favored by canary and finch breeders for bringing birds into breeding condition.
As a treat feed ½ teaspoon of hemp seed per bird once or twice a week. With birds that you want to breed, feed ½ teaspoon per bird daily.
This is sterilized seed. It will not fully sprout. The processing and handling that birdseed receives is not as stringent as for other uses. This hemp is not recommended for human consumption.
