    Can someone tell me if I can feed my 2 week old standards some tomato and broccoli? I have some left over from dinner and thought about giving it to them. Of course they will need grit but not sure if they are too young. Also can it be raw or does the broccoli need to be cooked?
    Thanks

    They can have it in small amounts. Fresh food is always better than processed treats. [​IMG]

    Thanks, I did give it to them and they loved it. I sprinkled grit on it.

    If you see green poops or bits of red don't get upset remember what you have fed them - broccoli can make some funky green poops if they have enough of it.
