Its whole quail thats been minced in a mincer so theres a bit of feather and bone in it. The pieces are dipped in a drop of water to moisten them and dapped into a vitamin powder.

PMSL Graham :tongue2: If I had to change glove each time I picked up a different bird throughout the day i'd never stop faffing about with gloves lol
Its my feeding glove anyway so all the birds whatever their species get fed on it :icon_redface: Joking aside though the only bird to really hurt me with a bite or a squeeze was a kestrel lol it was an evil little cow and met its end as it crashed into a farm shed... I didnt really feel any sympathy lol
