But remember that they need to be organic as they are now the No. 1 dirtiest produce on the list!

I usually have a strawberry patch in my garden but didn't have as much this year as some died during the winter. Chance doesn't like them. She doesn't like raspberries, either, and I have two bushes! Raspberries have more fiber than strawberries.

None of my birds like raspberries, either! I've always wondered why because they LOVE blackberries and blueberries (I am planning on planting a couple of bushes of each when I move back home - blackberries grow wild everywhere in my country but blueberries are 'introduced') and, although they don't get them very often (because they are VERY expensive so I only buy them when they are on sale as I need two containers for all the birds), they also eat strawberrries. But it's just as well because raspberries are very high in oxalic acid, anyway...
