Re: Pine Needle Tea

On a survival course I took part in, They made a tea from Rose hips and pine needles combined togeather for a drink packed with vitamin c. Dont think its a combination i would try again anytime soon. The rose hips did taste really good though after they had been infused.

I had the same problem with soft shells from my quails. I was told by my local breeder to scrape a small amount of cuttlefish bone into there water so they can get the calcium they need. And also to mix abit of grit in there feed.
