Thanks! This site has helped me out alot and I've learned so much! I've had them for about 5mths. They're bonded
brothers, unneutered and will be 2 yrs old in August. I will definitely cut back on the swapping and cleaning, thanks!
Makes total sense that that would cause over marking! I found a suggie doc (Blueridge vet
Assoc in Va) and have an appt for neutering so hopefully that helps with that some too. So eating...no, not hulling...just completely leaving it there and not eating it or throwing it out the cage lol. They will sometimes surprise me and eat a few pieces...but its random and they never eat it consistently. So far the random and sometimes eaten veggies are sweet potatoes, squash, peas, peppers, avocados (very seldom) and sometimes cucumbers. I have tried a bunch of others on the safe list and they won't touch them. Not even the veggies the old owner said they ate. The boys are extremely picky with their fruits too. And have completely different pallets. Even the hpw, they will sometimes not eat. They hate mealies. There's even skipped meals. But they do alot of day munching. Honestly it just seems they're a little spoiled with having foods now that they've never had before...
Their past owner fed them hpw, apples, bok choy, spinch, lots of flavored baby cereal, dried fruits, glider complete pellets, occasional berries and yogurt. So maybe they're just overwhelmed?
I'm hoping too that they are just bored with the hpw and switching to another brand will help. But I'm worried about them not eating the salads. I can just see them picking through it lol.
I do have pictures, once I figure out how to upload them I will attach
Oh, and I've stopped pureeing.
: hpw with eggs or yogurt, glider booster,fruits and veggies...and I leave the pellets (only because it's a left over bag from their owner) w/ dried fruit and veggies for the day munching and yogurt treats.
