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)
Have a read of this thread from back in 2014 prior to the server jumps so has some weirdo formatting showing up for some reason but the info reference herbs etc is in there of what you can and cannot use
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.
Have a look at Basil and Oregano
I buy star anise when its on offer in large quantities and them bung it in dishes around the house parrot safe if they want a nibble lovely aromatic aniseed hmmm like having a herbal air freshener
