Default Re: Fav foods?

Duncan's favorite fruit is a tough one, I don't usually feed fruits too often since they're so sugary, but I think he loves bananas best.

His favorite vegetable would be either carrots or spinach

He absolutely LOVES walnuts, and the two of us will often share one once a week or so

His favorite protein source is definitely Turkey, most of the thanksgiving leftovers went to him. However, being vegetarian, I don't have a whole lot of turkey in so I get more chicken for him and my dogs

His favorite chew is one of those "stick bundles" which pulls apart and throws all about his cage

Duncan's favorite toy is honestly, probably a cardboard box lol

I've never really fed fruit to Jasper but he did enjoy apple and necterine when I gave him the tiniest cube in the past. Favourite vegetable would be red pepper by far. It's the only thing he will consistently eat. Jasper has always liked almonds and gets those as a treat. Protein source would have to be dried mealworms (classic little Winter White) but he likes freeze dried chicken as well. I don't tend to feed many other protein sources as he hates scrambled egg with a passion and I don't eat meat. Larry-Jasper's favourite chew is by far Whimzees. He goes absolutely bonkers for them! I always think you can never go wrong with a Whimzee. I don't think Jasper really has a favourite toy. He likes most things I put in the cage and will find some use for it, however unconventional (throwback to when he used a cardboard tunnel for nesting).

Smile Re: Fav foods?

This is easy because my hamster loves to eat.
Wasabi's favorite fruit is apple (if you wanna get technical than it's cucumber since cucumber is technically a fruit.) She loves lettuce and probably wouldn't survive without sunflower seeds (I put a seed instead of a nut since I don't really feed her nuts). Wasabi really likes these plain oats I get from Publix. I don't but her chews but I will start soon. Lolly/Popsicle sticks and cardboard are being used for now and she adores the cardboard which she completely tears up after about 5 minutes of it being in her cage. I don't really have toys for her but I'm getting her some toys next weel when I stop at PetSmart.

Khalis favourites are
* brocolli without a doubt. She gets all grabby when you hold it in front of her haha
* not really tried her on much, she has only had red and green grapes, strawberry, apple and melon. I think she liked the melon the most as its what she went for first out of a mixed bowl
*she goes bonkers for brazil nuts. Ive only tried her on those and hazelnuts at the mo, but she loves her brazil nuts
*Im a bit crap with this. I have only ever given her a bit of chicken, so I need to give her a bit more and mixed selection
*the cage bars haha
* at the mo its a close call between terrorising me or her wheel

It's extremely rare for mine to get fruit being prone to diabetes but they do love blueberry & apple when they've had it as a special treat.
Tinwë's favourite veg is probably broccolli, he's not too fussed about other veg although he does enjoy dandelion leaves, my Chinesey's all love courgette most but enjoy lots of veg & freshly sprouted seeds of course!
Nuts would probably be a toss up between walnuts & pine nuts with monkey nuts coming close behind.
They all love protein, being a Russian it almost goes without saying that Tinwë goes mad for mealworms but I'm not sure the others have a favourite really, mealworms, dried chicken or duck & tofu are all loved.
Chews would be whimzees for Tinwë especially the algae ones & Greenies for my Chineseys with Biscrok coming in as a second fav.
They don't really play with toys but are all crazy for the wheel & sand bath almost in equal measure.
Slave to Zak, Gusto & Merilin.
Always loved, never forgotten, forever in my heart
