Hi crumblepenny

It’s hard to say, for sure, but the link between mealworms and brittle bone disease (due to the inbalance of phosphorous and calcium) is becoming more known about. As well, to a lesser extent sunflower hearts, other than in a mixed, balanced feed. Really nice to hear the two hogs recovered enough to be released again.
