    Default Tiny baby acorns

    Just cut fresh oak branches that have tons of little acorn buds
    Are these ok if they nibble them?

    I've had them and they are green. I was told they are fine so I did give them to my squirrels 👍

    Yes, squirrels in the wild start eating acorns when they are green and young.

    I have seen a lot of young squirrels, but none of them have been green!

    True when it's put it that way.

    Yet did you know that most N.A. flying squirrels viewed under flourescent light glow pink!
