The store I shop at sells Dandilion greens, and boy do my 3 love them. But then there isnt much they dont love when its food! Im so lucky none of the 3 are picky eaters ;D This week its spring mix, sweet potato, collard, turnip greens, acorn squash, and stawberries for treats.
Yeah, soon as I put the food in she/he started going over to smell what was in the salad. I think he/she really likes the cilantro. Doesn't seem too appealed with the acorn squash. I printed out the food chart and I think I'm gonna go and get some more variety of foods. Theres no dandelion greens anywhere unless they will eat those flower looking things called dandelions in your yard? Any suggestions where to find them?

You can buy them from WHOLE FOODS.. They sell them there. Most likely your yard has pestisides, and other things to kill the weeds. I personally have never given him yard dandelions. I bought them from whole foods once. They were super expensive and not all that fresh at the time. Sometimes you just have to guage price, location, and health over a treat for the iggy. They're great for them but I just can't spend the money weekly to give him the greens, plus they're a seasonal item. Out of the season the price gets worst.
=[ i live in neither of those cities. Maybe ill take a hours drive or so there and stock up? I guess for now ill just keep feeding him the available greens here and if i just so happen to go to one of those cities ill be sure to get some. thanks for telling me. =D
Hallu all. Wanted to add my iggy's diet for this week and see what you guys think [s/he doesn't have a name yet cuz my brother sorta lost interest and I don't want to name him/her without his consent, though I call him/her Leggy]. Poor thing hasn't been getting a proper diet the past 3 weeks because my father sort of got bored of buying them. Next couple weeks a lot of changes will take affect and I'll be able to buy him/her the good stuff again [s/he LOVES endives, alfalfa and chicory, though his/her fave is Mulberry leaves ]
-grapes [not much] -collard greens -plum [just the one...dun wanna get a gift every time I let him/her out!] -mulberry leaves -tomatoes for color [no seeds] -dandelion greens -cucumbers [not much]
BTW: How do you guys get the igs to eat minced-mixed bowls? Leggy only likes eating whole things, and will often leave a bowl of cut-up greens [even his/her faves!] to rot, while the same mix without too much slicing leads to a lot more being eaten. But this also means that s/he plays the picky ig and only eats his/her faves =/ I tried tricking him/her by putting his/her fave whole greens on the bottom and minced on top, but s/he outsmarted me, and dug until s/he got to the whole ones and left the rest...
