It grows fairly easily apparently. I say this because I often find millet
growing under my birdfeeder. Keep in mind that most the prepackaged bird
seed bags contain heat treated or irradiated seeds to prevent the spilled
seed from germinating. Get a handful of millet from the bulk bins at a feed
store, that stuff is usually not sterilized, it's typically about 25c per
I suppose if you want to grow this specifically for your pet's consumption
and not all the local wild birds you'll probably need to cover it in some
sort of netting.
Yes, ought to be very easy to grow. I used to grow it from the seed
purchased for my zebra finches. And yes, since birds love it, as the seed
heads mature, cover it -- nylon netting works well and is very inexpensive.
