I agree with the statement " just because their eating doesn't mean it's the best" though I suspect that higher protein content is something most people would consider better for wild bird feed.
It seems that I often hear the converse "If food XYZ isn't bad then why don't animals eat it? A farmer had some cattle escape and walk right bast a crib of XYZ corn to eat some organic corn standing in the field" which is also poor logic.
"How many licks ..." - I think all of this dog's research starts with these words. Tasty tiny ad:
