I'm trying hard to keep her spirits up during her box rest - so giving her fresh cut grass, thistles, nettles etc. She is getting thin sliced carrots and today I bought some locally grown turnip to slice up and hide in her readi graze. She has a couple of pieces of banana in her breakfast. She does like a slice of apple now and again. What else can I give her?

She's not fat, she's too short :-)

When mine was on box rest I gave her Swede. She usually hates it but the was no grass on offer bar the little she could nibble during muck out.
Her token feed is one banana with skin.

They are allowed cucumber and beetroot. But never offered mine that. I have a free beetroot feed sample though.

Just been advised not to feed apple but that might be mine mate specific. It was in relation to teeth.

Oooh I never thought of cucumber. Might see if she likes it. Lol used to feed it to my tortoise!
