Today, after a long Dr appointment, when I got home, without thinking about whether or not it might be a good idea, I picked one of our medlars and took it to the girls to see if they'd eat it at all (I just wanted a little quality time with my girls!). I thought they'd take one bite of the medlar and spit it out. Nope. They LOVED it! They totally ignored the zucchini slices I gave them. So, here's my question: Should I go easy on the medlars? Or would it be safe to feed the girls one every couple days or so? For clarification, this was a medlar straight off the tree. It wasn't bletted. And once they got their beaks on it they just tore into it.
