silver beat is also really good to feed them but not on a daily basis cuz of the water content


Main problem with silver beet is the high oxalic acid content...causes stones of a different sort to the stones cased by calcium!

Carrots are also very high is sugars and in calcim.

Lucerene is fine for our youngsters, just stop using it in large quantities when they are around 9 months old. Its good for their nutrition while they are growing, but lucerne does not have the same tooth-grinding properties as grassy hay. Oaten hay is also a good one.

also corn is full of sugars - it should ONLY be given as an irregular treat or for fattening up sick piggies.
