i purchased a pair of greens about 2 months ago. haven't sexed my self yet, still letting them settle in and get feeding underway.
i was told they were feeding on f/t rats. after about 3 weeks i tried feeding. nothing. tried live rats, nothing. i then turned to the posts here since it has been a while since i have kept greens. i read through the posts on problem feeders (well all of them really) and got ideas what i should do.
i saw a post that kelly put up on greens often prefering chicks for the first year. i don't know why i didnt think of it earlier but ordered some and 1 started feeding overnite first thing. it was the one starting to get thin. made me incredibly happy. the other was keeping its body weight well so i waited another week and still nothing. so i picked up a live 2 day old chick. still nothing.
still with Kelly's post, she said ducks were best. today about an hour ago i put a live 3 day old duckling in with it.
if this does not work, what else can i do? temp stays around 85. humidity is around 70%, 2 hide boxes ( 1 heat and 1 not) in a 28 qt rubber maid. in the bonus room so not alot of traffic except in the evenings when i get home to look in on everyone.
my yellows on the other hand eat everything i put in front of them.
thanks
Michael
