Ripple Effect

Blueberry and Meels used to eat plain oats before they had multiple kids to nurse. When they needed extra calories, I fed them “sweet feed”, a molasses-coated mixture of corn, oats, and barley. (The young doelings eat sweet feed, too, since they were raised on it.) Blueberry and Meels don’t need it now but are spoiled and won’t eat plain oats anymore.

Our sparrows are also quite fond of sweet feed. The little birds flit only a few feet away from the buckets, waiting for their chance to dig into the grain crumbs. Apparently, a spoiled herd means a spoiled flock!

The birds look rather chubby. Some even have double chins!
