Molly and Junior - another fussy phase

Post by Thumper2001 on Tue Dec 01, 2015 9:14 pm

And the search function won't pull up any of my previous threads about this HBWS

They're still eating broccoli. They won't eat kale. They're picking at cavolo nero.

I've had no luck in the past with:
Savoy cabbage
Rocket
Parsley
Basil
Green beans

Any suggestions, please?

Coriander, mint, green pepper, celery (cut into pieces), romaine lettuce are veg I have fed in the past. I have given up on fresh forage at the moment - the weather is too vile to get out and about.

All the above. And have you tried the purple flowering broccoli as well as the calibrese stuff?
And though it's naughty you could add a sliver of apple or pear to add some variety and after eating one of these I've often seen a bun dig into the old standards with renewed energy... I think a sweet taste wipes the pallet or something and makes the usual veggies more palatable.

Fennel is a white bulb. My pair love it, but then they aren't fussy!

I have never known a bun or guinea pig who doesn't like parsley or carrot tops.

Fennel is not a true bulb so is safe. I can't remember the reasons why exactly but it is definitely safe.

Soundwave doesn't eat carrot tops but he not normal, even the nurse at the vets said that.

Artichoke leaves, asparagus, baby sweetcorn, beetroot(care with leafy tops are high of oxalic acid), broccoli, Brussels, cabbage(can cause indigestion problems), carrots and carrot tops(but then the vet said only a small amount), cauliflower, celeriac, celery, chicory, courgette, cucumber(can cause sticky poos), curly kale, fennel, green beans, kohl rabi, parsnip, peas, peppers, pumpkin, radish tops, rocket, romaine lettuce, spinach(only occasionally), squash, swede, turnip(only occasionally, thought it was the same as swede), watercress.

That's the veggie bit I got from the vets for Miranda

Ha ha Gemma love, they all have their little quirks.  You can guarantee too if you get them something different for a treat, something which you would consider really nice, they will ignore it.
