It's early but it's mild ...... Rexit has a lady friend :hug2: :love: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He's acting just as daft as his dad and grandfather and she's hiding in the pyrowatsit :magnify:.

Personally, I think it's a bit early but Rexit always was the pushy type. Maybe he's just practising.

If I were her I'd stay in the pyrowatsit as she'll end up trying to feed a nest full of youngsters in perishing cold weather. The sap may be rising for young Rexit but there are few bucketfuls of cold water yet to come. :nod:

I absolutely concur. In fact, I've told him what you said but you know how it is, you just can't talk to kids nowadays. Young luv and all that.

Still, I think I'll up the mealworm order in mid-February.

It is very seldom that you get uneaten mealies. Keeping up with demand is more the issue. :nod:

Yes, definitely, Greenfinch :wave2:.
Unhydrated mealworms can be dangerous because the birds eat lots of them and then they swell in the bird's craw causing all sorts of disaster :eek:.
Same thing goes for sultanas and raisins. Expert advice is that they should be soaked as well in order to hydrate them.

:wave2: Usually a bird magnet, mealies.
Overnight soaking (same with sultanas) is best and then the worms are transformed into guaranteed gourmet food :munch:.
