Big Adjustment

I am so stuck in "chinnie mode" that I'm having trouble adjusting to the fact that jirds can eat pretty much anything! LOL This will take some time...

Wow! So what do you plan on feeding them?

Right now I am giving them a gerbil mix - they need an extra protein source, so Georga suggested Peanuts. I went out and got some last night, added them to their food, and they were gone! lol I have also given them apple, which they seem to like.

Among the list of things they can have - pretty much any fruit or vegetable (they love raisins as much as chinnies do!), dog biscuits, cat treats... some people even feed them table scraps!!

I don't know if you have them in your area but Petco sells a hamster/gerbil mix that has peanuts included.

I checked the ingredients of the one I'm using last night and they're in there - but not many. And I really don't know how much they need. (Georga!?!)

I give Old Mother Hubbard Bitz dog treats to my hamster. They are tiny pieces and are good for the teeth as well. This should also help with the protein.

I tried some chicken but they didn't eat it. I heard they like roasted, so maybe they're just being picky and the chicken I had didn't have enough flavor!! LOL
