The seeds must not be types included in their main mix in order to add true variety and have a real benefit from being added to the diet.Going from this guideline,it should be very easy to come up with a combination of seeds to give or a massive list(rotate between types when possible to offer maximum diversity within reason).If in doubt,simply post here with a link to the product you need to verify the safety of

Here's a short list of safe seeds and nuts

"Pine nuts
Peanuts (monkey nuts)
Sweet almonds (deshelled; NOT bitter)
Brazil nuts
Beech nuts
Flax seeds
Chia seeds
Sunflower seeds
Pumpkin seeds
Sesame seeds
Niger seeds"

If you have any seeds/nuts in particular you're curious about, ask and we can specify! There are definitely more out there, these are the only ones I know off the top of my head

That's a good list Drago, you could add hemp, perilla, milk thistle & safflower to that, all popular with my dwarf hams but syrians sometimes have different tastes!
