We are starting our foray into keeping birds by getting a dozen guinea keets this weekend, and hoping some of our incubating eggs hatch into Buff Orpington's and Olive eggers next weekend.
The well water at our place has a high fluoride content, which is not great for growing kids, and therefore we assume not great for growing chicks and other animals?
So we have planned on feeding our birds rain water, as we do with the pup (and plants, when we can). But our latest batch of rain water has yellow pollen in it. Is that okay to feed to keets and/or chicks? And is it a good idea to avoid giving them well water with high fluoride content while they are growing? What about after they are grown?
Thank you in advance for any responses, and thank you for everything I have already learned just from reading many threads.
