Dont forget the unlimited supply of hay and the fresh water but I am sure you give that anyway. Its good to space it out. I guess quantity wise it would depend on the size of your bowls. Veg wise its good to feed a variety of veg they can eat allsorts of stuff baby corn, celery, brocolli, spring greens, melon, bananna with skin etc so its good to give them different things sometimes in addition to things you feed everyday like carrot, cucumber

but generally sounds good! :)

Mine love basil but they really like the bags of salad you can buy. The last one we got they loved it had frisee or somethin like that in it. I think mine get too much sometimes because they don't eat all of it :)

I've been told to reduce the amount of carrot to only a couple of pieces a week as it can increase kidney/bladder stones so I've increased greens, herbs etc.

I meant I'm not sure if you can give a small amount of ice berg lettuce. But any other is fine. Mine used to like the little gem ones but they prefer the sruff you get in salads now :)

Sooty loves brocolli never seems interestead in the stalk bit tho. They like all types of cabbage aswell and small amounts of banana but not too often erm.. Misty likes pears and Brandy like the red bells peppers. That's all I can think of right now..
