My Silkies are quite finicky They are a bit over one year. They do not free range however grit is provided for them. They have tired of the brown rice that they have mid afternoon and when I put cheese on it they scream in excitement and eat it up like it is candy. I realise cheese needs to be provided very sparingly due to the possible wear and tear on their organs.I give them calicum every so often as well as salmon not too often , due to salt. I do however rinse it off before. They get their "dry food ration in morning and end of day/early evening before they bed down and chat about how such a pain I am to them.lol. They get cabbage in morning then carrots and either celery or cukes all put in food processor or they will throw shavings etc in the food and pout in a corner. I know that if they get hungry they will eat eventually . I prefer removing the soiled food from them after a bit of time as I do not want them to eat the shavings mess. I occasionally give them banana though not too often as their droppings get very loose. I hand feed a set amount to them. When they were chick,s in the rice place was oatmeal mixed with applesauce or plain yougurt ,this too they tired of as well. I was thinking about cooked lentils however I am concerned that there is something on outside of the legume that might not be good for them. Someone please provide some insight as my girls are too much to be believed and I need proper nutrition for them. ACV is in their water everyday.
