    Is there any herbs, spices I could put in my chop to maybe make it more enticing to eat?

    I put together a bowl of seeds and stuff (pinch of linseed, sesame, a few sunflower seeds a couple of pine nuts etc), and to bulk it out I include crushed chillie peppers, cardamom seeds (green or black), cumin, coriander, cloves, whole peppercorns,star anise too. I vary it day to day and sometimes they will get eaten sometimes not!

    Thanks I will try and get hold of some new ingredients and see if I can find something Luna likes the smell and taste of.

    If the chop is for you then i do not know your favorite smells, I use fresh orange or lemon juice to improve the smell of ckop, you do not need much just a slight sqeeze, (two of my flock will not touch veggie chop unless i juice it slightly)

    Thank you, interesting that garlic is in there - I know most sites say it is toxic but Dora goes nuts to get at it when I am preparing garlic and I have often given her a tiny bit.
