Foraging sub forum?

Hi everyone!

I wanted to test the waters and see what everyone thought of having a subforum dedicated to everything foraging: foraging ideas, etc. I know we have the diet section, but an argument could be made that foraging is so important and so varied that it could merit its own section.

Or perhaps a stickie within the diet section.

Thoughts?

Re: Foraging sub forum?

A bird who has to work a bit harder to obtain it’s food is less likely to be engaged in destructive behaviours like feather plucking, so yes I think it would be a great idea to make it a topic or at least a sticky

Re: Foraging sub forum?

There is likely Threads in most of the sub-forums that include discussions on Foraging. Having a single place for this subject has merit as it is an elusive subject for longtime owners and new comers as well.

Being a sub-forum, in my mind has merit, as a Sticky in another sub-forum can result in it being difficult to find.

Our Julio is not much into Foraging as he has a limited interest is such things. If it presents more that a quick open process, he simply takes it to the stairway and pushes it off the edge...

Re: Foraging sub forum?

It was an excellent suggestion (Thanks, Chris!), and the mods and Admin very much agree that there is a need. Here is a link to our latest sub-forum: The New Foraging Sub-forum!
