thumb Of course not! They love their treats. I gave them each half a pitted cherry, 3 blueberries, frozen peas, gr beans, and carrots with vitamins and calcium sprinkled, 3 mealies, and BML minus the vitamins last night. They ate UP the cherry. Tonight will by froz vegs and cantaloup and apple.
Once my mix comes in I will be feeding the HPW.

I don't think a batch makes 240 servings. Because I have 18 gliders, and a batch doesn't last quite a week. Maybe I'm measuring something wrong, but...Hmmm...Of course, I made a double batch about 12 days ago, and I have a few days left on it, so who knows.

Waiting for Peggy to measure out the HPW and tell us her findings!
I find the same thing Shawna mine last about 6 days.

Peggy on a good note. Mr. Magoo has been at 121 grams forever and vet wanted to see a bit more weight on him well when I weighed him yesterday he weighed 130 grams! He looks real good now.


Have a Good Day

Well if you all look back up....it was LINDA who came up with the figures, only because I was always too lazy to do it myself!!

I corrected her on it once, when she had the measurements wrong and she fixed it....

Linda, if you are wrong again...so help me....I will come all the way to your house and thump you on the noggin!! roflmao

(kidding of course, but you dont think I can take the blame for this one do ya? :shocked:)

What's the question, Lauren? You are right - any kind of honey, but not Raw.

What she got says Pure Raw Clover Honey. I'm guessing you wouldn't want to use that since it does say Raw on the bottle.

Lauren, we buy the Great Value (Wal-Mart Brand) Honey. It comes in a jug that is about 8 inches high or so...Maybe 3 in across and a blue label. It says Clover Honey and then something like US Grade A Pure at the bottom of the label.

Honestly, I'm not sure why the raw is bad.

Here is what I have learned from my husband dabbling in bees/honey. Raw honey has not been heated/pastureized. Heating kills off many enzymes and impurities, botulism being one of them. Someone please correct me if I am wrong but I am thinking that there may not be enough of this harmful stuff to bother a human but since a glider is so small and delicate that we would not want to have them exposed to the bad stuff in raw honey. Just MHO here! idea

Ohhhh Megi, such a silly gal you are!! roflmao

I can assure you all that I am not the one that discovered feeding raw honey is bad.

Feeding Raw honey is dangerous due to botulism.

I know we used to have a HUGE thread about this and I believe it was Mary and Charlie that brought it to attention. thumb

After I get out of work, I will try to find it.

You guys didn't scroll down to my correction.. a REGULAR batch, not the breeder formula actually makes approximately 160 servings, not 240 servings. Peggy corrected me on how much you're actually supposed to be feeding them a night.

Let me read through my findings again and hopefully find some answers.

If you have 18 gliders and are feeding each one of them 1.5 teaspoons a night.. 1 batch should be lasting you about 8 days, almost 9 days.

Since one regular batch makes 160 servings, you divide that by your number of gliders, 18, and you come out with the number 8.88888..and so on.. so your mix is lasting you about right on the nose.

Every measurement is going to be different depending on how much is left in bowls, measuring cups, the blender, etc.

I am going to make ONE batch of HPW tonight and do the calculations.. so I can see exactly where my error was.

I did the math and 1 BATCH should make 160 SERVINGS, not 240.. but now I have confused the heck out of myself. roflmao

My new calculations go right along with how long people are saying that it lasts, give or take a day or two.
crazy

Once I figure it out, I will start a new post, so that my first post is completely correct.

Peggy, I have a spot in my kitchen for you. Bring the measuring cups, more HPW and bee pollen, and get your booty in my kitchen. grin

Jessica, go to the store and buy any honey you want. Can even be the cheap, generic kind. Just as long as it does not say the word RAW anywhere on the jar.

You will see most of them say Pure, that is ok to get. thumb

1 1/2 teaspoons per glider - since you have 2 you'd feed 1 tablespoon HPW, 2 Tablespoons Veggies and 2 Tablespoons Fruits wink

No, there is not calcium or vitamin powders to sprinkle with this diet. You can feed the joeys the same amount, they just may not eat as much as the adults.
