I've found it hard enough to make successful G2G transfers from colonized jars to spawn bags, with my success rate maybe half, and that's with extreme precautions. Glove box, an Aspen air ionizer.
Me, I perfer to use fully colonized jars and then mix then into a pasturized staw and worm casting boxes.
Wish ya the best tho, and I would suggest you kinda keep an eye on your grain moisture content before injecting an LC. With the birdseed or other grains reasonabally dry, you should be able to innoculate your bag with a healthy LC dose, hopefully getting your culture to take ahold before other problems occur.

but my thinking would be
wbs is cheap, time is not.
i'd let those bags procede and see how it goes
meanwhile i'd make some new ones with more water
for use with more of that LC

the telltale is the degree to which the
kernels have swollen up from absorbed water.
with those it isn't possible to ascertain with
any degree of confidence
one way or the other,
about all that is certain is that it is not too wet.
even if they are a bit short they may still colonize
but will falter before fruiting
so you might dunk the spawn once it's fully colonized
before using it.
