Things to try (General Discussion)

Kim, if you are going to try dried mealworms, I don't think you need to be too concerned about the keets also taking in some grit. Those mealworms are very brittle, and they're not much harder to digest than their regular poultry feed. Live mealworms never worked out for me. I think my guineas were frightened by their movement. :L: White millet does require a certain amount of grit to help with digestion. I would offer the grit in a separate bowl or dish. They can choose to take in what they need. It helps to first offer the white millet or the mealworms by hand or to scatter them about. Later, after they have decided they like it, you can put each in a separate dish (or one dish for the both) for them to feed out of. Be consistent with your offerings. I would try a couple of times each day for about a week before giving up and trying something else. It might take a few days for them to become interested in anything that is strange.
