    Its fixing to freeze in texas... that means I ought to scrounge the greens from the fall/ winter veggies.
    That means its thanksgiving buffet early at the Kims farm. Ive got goats, chickens, geese,a couple mallards, and a friend just gave me some rabbits and young quail.
    I havent studied on quail yet, im not sure what they can eat.

    So, from the veggie garden; im clipping carrot tops, beet tops, asian radish and red radish tops... I also have a few late volunteer watermelon and pumpkin plants.

    As far as the radishes go, the goats and geese are the only ones that eat those, im positive rabbits would love carrot tops... but whom else would like stuff I dont really know. And I dont know what quail will eat other than the chick starter.... theyre at least 3 months old.
    Would/could rabbits eat radishes??

    Thanks for helping. :D

    My goats, the ducks, and The neibors donkey also loves watermelon rind. But all thats left is tiny pumpkin and watermelon plants. The pet sitter fed ALL the pumpkins to the chickens.... I had 4 bushels of sugar babies that vanished in 2 weeks... I was sooo mad! My chickies got FAT!:cd
