    Good quality GBS+Tap water= healthy birds. I'm constantly on the lookout for bugs 30% protein or better, cost less 35 cents a pound, and can't vector bad things to my birds....I'm stuck with GBS and tap water.

    Just because your bird/birds go crazy over anything, doesn't mean it's good for them. My dog would go crazy over and eat every piece of chocolate in the house, but she would die. Not the same with meal worms, but something to think about.

    This is my first post and and I know this is and old thread but I'm curious. Is this raw or cooked pumpkin? As you can see I'm a newbie.

    Mealworm feeding can cause quail to mistake each other's toes for worms. They can seriously injure each other's feet, so proceed with caution.[​IMG]

    We used to have a member that always said that about young quail. I've never feed them. Actually I never feed quail anything other then wet grain.
