    Hello ALL!! I know it is ok to eat the watermelon and give the flesh and rind to the babies and they eat down to the rind and leave it.But what about the cantelope is it ok to do the same with that.I have looked and did'nt see anything about it really.I have about 15 pieces that we just cut the flesh off of but I don't want to hurt the birds.
    Thanks in advance for your help..Have a nice evening!!!

    Hello Thanks again for all the input.I don't know what to do I have never had so many people to answer before.We really do appreciate it.Since we are newbies We don't want to do anything to hurt our babies.They love watermellon but I wasn't sure about the cantelope.now since your answers I have tried it.They wern't real sure of it at first but now they jump right on it.Of course their favorite treat of all is mealworms I get attacked when I go in with those.LOL
    Thanks again and have a blessed one!!!
