Cool New gerbil owner-questions

So, I have two pet male gerbils. I've had them for about a month and they're only about 4 or 5 months oled, but is that too old to get them used to you/ train them?

Also, what kind of vegatables are and are not good for them?

Thanks so much!

They are still young, and you can alway tame/train them whatever age they are.

Heres a link on gerbil diet -

Pretty much don't feed them sugary things (chocolate, candy etc.), Onions, try not to feed to much lettus, and not iceberg lettues if at all possible. Also some say that Citris fruit are not good for them, but others say they are ok.
Other then that they are pretty good for msot fruits & veggies you can eat.
