Hi, regarding food, I did start with mealworm and quickly stopped when I read you shouldn’t feed them. I have noticed if you find something they like (as with mealworm) then stop giving it they go on hunger strike. It’s only for a few days till they give in and eat. They love Spike semi moist, it’s like mince meat. I also get Chambers biscuits but they don’t eat much except it I put cat food on top. Chicken, turkey and duck. NO FISH. They love cat biscuits and adore Dream chicken biscuits for cats. Those are given as a treat when I come across one. As said, plenty of rain water. A dish in the feeding station, heavy dog bowl in a grid with a brick so they don’t fall down the drain, plus 2 floor standing bird baths. All need topping up every night. Hope this helps. Good luck to you all.
