    My hermanns is about a month and a half old. Loves clover and pansy flowers and leaves. Im here in Kansas and the clover is getting thin this time of year so I have started some dandelion and chicory from seeds. I cant get him to eat any pellets. I have offered the mazuri and Rep-Cal but is always left untouched. Is he getting the vitamins he needs just from the leaves and flowers?

    My hermanns likes collard, mustard, and turnip greens so far. I haven’t had him very long but so far his favorite treat is tomatoes. He hates carrots and doesn’t especially care for butternut squash.:):p
