    Again, my program isn't compatible with the format of these photos to view them.

    Berries are a touchy wild food to consider gathering for animals; for like mushrooms for every edible source there are toxic look-a-likes. One website says to taste but not swallow, but instead spit it out yet this is a concern as some that aren't ripe may be ok, and others not, and then a few like ivy berries which are highly toxic, or lethal like poison ivy berries.

    It is also vital that the leaves also are identified, as that is part of the berry ID process.

    The old rule of thumb is to avoid berries without a crown. Taking time, to study berries, buying a guide with photos, will help you to ID the more common edibles.

    In any case, don't feed any source that you aren't 100 % sure of the ID of.

    These are just a few of the websites I found online:

    Just now got to check this, thank you Diggie’s Friend! Been crazy with all these sick babies
    But I will wait on anything with berries. They seem to like Osk and Hickory; hoping to wean them soon!

    Just thought to mention; I wouldn't go tasting berries, save to see if they are ripe after having absolutely positively ID them,

    for ivy berries even tasted notably can be lethal.

    Yup and Poke berries are beautiful but only birds can digest them, they kill mammals.
