Warn­ing: go slow when feed­ing out

NZ Lifestyle Block - - The good life -

Never al­low hun­gry stock sud­den ac­cess to large amounts of a new food. Sud­den changes to their diet can cause gas­tric up­sets and can even be fatal. All new foods need to be grad­u­ally in­tro­duced to their diet, and as an op­tion. As a gen­eral rule, none of these trees should ex­ceed 5% of their di­etary in­take.

Some stock may take a while to learn to eat new foods, and older stock can show them how to do so.
