Do called Pyracantha berries turn into plants?
I have a Pyracantha hedge on a terrace above my main border. Last year I spent ages picking up all the berries from the border in case they turned into mini monsters. This year the hedge is equally laden with, as yet, immature berries. As the birds don’t eat them all (maybe they are scared of the patrolling cats) do I need to keep picking them out of the border or is is safe to leave them be?
Mountainous Northern Catalunya, Spain. Hot summers, cold winters.
If a few germinate it’s so much easier to use a hoe or even your fingers to remove a few plants than to collect so many seeds.

It's strange that your birds won't eat them. My blackbirds are like great fat turkeys by the time the shrub is stripped.
