Hi, RaneBeau,
The frozen quail were purchased from a firm in Idaho? Someplace like that. Think they sold specifically to falconry type people. One had to thaw the frozen quail before giving to the hawk of course. Dad used lil pieces of beef heart in training. Mom was the one who had to scour the grocery stores looking for the stuff, ick she thought. Sometimes she'd have to buy rabbit too. Funny, mom never seems to see those two things in the stores, perhaps she got 'em at a hispanic specialty store? She can't recall now.

A former neighbor kept snakes and he offered the hawk a snake that kept biting him (non poisonious). Dad says that hawk scarfed the snake so fast it was gone by the time the neighbor tossed it in the food hole and ran to the front to watch.

We liked the broccoli millet best of the flavored ones. The cranberry was okay and so was the orange, but we didn't really like the raspberry one. Guess the color was too weird. There used to be a calcium coated millet that we liked, but mom doesn't think it's made anymore. That took us awhile to figure out it was millet underneath and of course thereafter we'd decimate it quickly. Think we saw that about Poirot and thought it strange a bigger beak bird would enjoy millet, but since there's a 'tiel in his flock he's used to seeing it eaten.

Today's okay, we were uncovered, lol. It wasn't the first time, but sure hope it doesn't happen again.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.
