Forgot to warn you about that. Usually you'll give in around day 5 and they still won't touch veg!!!
Been there and done that over the years - just does work sometimes.

well iv'e give it up as a bad job ! starved them all for five day's and they snubbed all the veggie's i put in :roll: so i guess the only thing i can do now is just keep putting veg in , in the forlorn hope that they take pitty on me and eat some of it !!! i wouldn't mind but it look's too good not too eat :lol: :lol:

Join the club. Mine just now gets curly kale and whatever I have in the veg drawer and he rarely eats it. you can try hiding worms in there in the hope a mouthful is accidently eaten. Otherwise don't worry. they will eat if they are hungry
