    Mine hate yogurt, won't touch the stuff . . . except for one, who goes crazy for it. The treat that never fails to turn into a feeding frenzy is a nice handful of roaches. They like them even more than the phoenix worms and crickets I catch for them! The jury's still out on veggies, but they'll eat no end of grass. Boiled eggs are a no no, but if I prepare them any other way they go crazy.

    They love hard boiled eggs, a bowl of warm oatmeal, corn bread, cooked pasta, kale, watermelon, tomatoes, and just about anything that I put out for them in the evening (that's our time of day for treats). They do hate most berries, will eat strawberries though, and yogurt. Silly birds! [​IMG]

    Quote:When some of the rescued 'broiler boys' had to be in the house for URIs I made them banana oatmeal everynight (it was Jan. and so cold) they LOVED it!
