    Question Herbs

    I grow some herbs for my chinchillas. They are not sprayed with anything so I was wondering if these herbs are okay for teils?

    - Curled Parsley
    - Golder Yellow Thyme
    - Sweet Basil

    Re: Herbs

    I have read somewhere that the more aromatic herbs should be limited (like mint -- perhaps basil also falls in this category?). I many be wrong here.

    Parsley will be good (it does interefere with calsium absorbtion, so limit this, especially with a female who is prone to laying eggs). But it has lots of goodies, too!

    The other two would be fine as well. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.

    You can also try: japanese mustard leaves, kale, chard, mizuna, dill. (Chard is a bit high in sodium, so limit this, too).

    Thanks Estie! I tried the parsley last night and he likes it.

    I will look into getting some of the other herbs too, thanks.
