pellets. Hay. Water. Period. With the occasional treat.

Do not get the Fiesta brand however. It is too sweet.

Get the pellets with only pellets in it.. otherwise it might eat only the non-pellets.

Get hay that is not in cubes.

Water.. just.. plain water. Don't add anything and don't use tap.

The occasional treat:

(don't give them too sugary stuff)

(note: I'm not meaning you can give all of these. just the rate at which you can give each. Do not give 1 raisin a month AND 1 out a day AND .... if you get what I mean..)

(raisins maybe 1 a month)

or

(1-2 oats per day)

or

(1 dandelion every 3 days)

or

(0.5 cheerios a day)

or

(1/3 slice of dried banana every 2 days)

or

(1/6 slice of dried apple every 2 days)

or

(1-2 sunflower seeds per day)

NEVER EVER give them chocolates or coffee. they will die.
