PostSubject: HPW Instructions Question   Thu Jan 14, 2010 10:27 pm

I have an issue and I just want to make sure everything is okay.

When I got these two boys that I am glider sitting for 6 months beginning Dec. 31st the couple gave me their HPW stuff and a set of instructions. I have made the HPW now for the second time following those instructions. I think they came from Peggy because they are identical to the set I just looked at and read that came with my starter kit and the bags say Critter Love.

The problem is that the Bee pollen amount is different on each set of instructions. The set that Anon's and Fivel's parents are following say 2 tablespoons of bee pollen and the instructions I got and the instructions posted here say 1 tablespoon of bee pollen.

I don't know if the one set is a typo error or did the diet change and the bee pollen get decreased.

I've been feeding this HPW using the 2 tablespoon instructions and never noticed the different instructions until I was reading a diet thread on GG.

Will these gliders (all 7 of them) be okay with the fact that I've doubled the bee pollen by using the other gliders instructions. I assume that Anon and Fivel have been eating their HPW this way all along but mine have not as this is a new diet for them.

I'm concerned so any answers would be appreciated.

Not completely sure but I think I read somewhere that the amount of bee pollin HPW changed. No clue why though.

Its a typo!! Peggy didnt even realise it until a few months ago but it was always meant to say 1 tablespoon of bee pollen...

Is there any harm being done if these two boys have been eating this as 2 tablespoons of bee pollen for the last IDK 8 or 9 months?

I will now make it with 1 tablespoon.

Thank You

Thanks Chris, and No Anita, there is no harm in them having that amount. The excess pollen just gets passed in their feces.

Thanks Peggy I appreciate the reply. I just didn't bother to read the second set of instructions you send with my starter kit because I had the other set on that index card.

No harm what-so-ever...if you ask Dee she feeds alot more than just 2 tbls of bee pollen at a time. Its a major part of her diet......

I make prolly every other or every third batch the "old way" because thats how I had been doing it and the gliders are super healthy and any blood work Ive had done shows it!!
