    You would think I gave them the world, lol. I minced fresh carrots & broccoli in my food processor, I added grit & sprinkled with feed. Took them a bit to realize it was FOOD, lol. Once they did they loved it. They are 8 weeks now.

    They'll eat just about anything once they figure out it's food, and won't bite back, LOL. Be sure to check the Treats Chart to make sure what they're getting is okay for them. Not much limitation, but there are a couple things that are definitely to be avoided. Glad you're having fun with your babies!
