I just picked up some sunflower sprouts at the farmer's market. Are these safe for my ~5 month old redfoot?

What are y'alls thoughts? Thanks

I've fed them a few times and they're always taken well. Sprouts are high in protein so not something to feed often. Use moderately like Maro2Bear said.

Yes they are safe. They are very high in phosphorus so moderation is key with these sprouts. That being said they do have a very good nutritional profile. If there was one sprout I would pick to live off of it would be the sunflower sprout or microgreen.

Thanks for pointing that out. I was so focused on the 25%-30% protein that I hadn't even noticed the 1:8.5 Ca:p.

Edit: Don't know how to use emojis, not sure how I got that in there, and can't edit it out. Please ignore.
