where can I buy canary seed milk drink (alpiste) in CH?

I am looking forward trying canary seed (e.g. in milk form) which is believed to have amazing health properties. Just Google it "canary seed properties" or "canary seed health" and you will find the scientific researches and known healing properties etc. I am just wondering where to buy it and try it here in CH.

I am also wondering whether to buy canary seed as sold for birds, I'd be more inclined to buy the one prepared and sold for humans

There is a place in Sihlstr opposite Paddy Rileys which as I recall is a bird specialist. Head towards the Sihlbrücke.
Also at Limmatplatz ther'e a pets specialist, on the corner next to Migros

Perfect the shop close to Paddy's had it and bought it!

Only thing is I messed up with my bad German and asked for "Kanarienschnitzel" instead of "Kanariensamen", got a very weird look from the shop assistant
