Too Much Of A Good Thing - Portion Control
Are they suddenly ill or what could be the problem? They look very healthy yesterday and even today with the loose dropping. Then I remember that yesterday I gave them a new dish which I generously filled with Blattner's seeds. The birds love it and immediately started eating their fill. Oops, it was way too generous! Portion Control needed here!
So they pigged out on their favorites, likely the flax (linseed) and now I need to reverse it a bit with extra greens and carbs but lower fat such as dry nestling food, plain canary seed, and millet sprays.
Invariably the Border with the dropping clinging to its feathers is one that is too thin or bordering on too thin.
