once the trees get some size to them we'll let the chickens in around them so they can eat up the drops
If you have dogs be careful! Mine take off branches trying to get to the apples
LOL.... Once I had a friend who had a Doberman Pincer..... Beautiful dog named TANK. She owned a training stable next to an avocado grove. Well The vet told her to put Tank on a diet because he was becoming.... "Tankish" So she did.... it didn't work.... so she had him down to a cup of kibble per day.... Now thats not a lot for a dog that size. So she was figuring that her clients were feeding him on the sly.... She put up signs and let everyone know.... Everyone complied of course.
So one day she watched Tank All day... After he ate his kibble he went out into the yard to do his dog patrols check he mail boxes along the fence then he would come back to his favorite lounge spot and chew on what she thought was a bone.... No big deal.... She did her usual work around the place training horses etc.... she noticed Tank stayed under the tree most of the day except to greet people.... Chewing on his bone.
She wondered what kind of bone he had so she went under his tree Duh Duh duuuuuh..... The ground was littered with Avocado pits. ***?.... She did a fence check and all be darned there was a hole under the fence into the avocado grove. He did have a shiny coat.... LOL.
So YES dogs can become vegetarians....
