    If you put a watermellon quarter (with some red meat still left in it) in a pen of ~60 semi-mature Bobwhites, there will be at least one that will get off right down smack-dab in the crater of the rind (that still has plenty of juice standing in it), and wallow like a pig ................. then..............when he decides to hop out of the "sticky syrup", he just became the target for all others to pluck his soggy, sticky feathers until he.............well, by the time I realized it, it was too late. No more of that kinda treat [​IMG]
    Just a frustrated vent.............
