I understand picky eaters.
I have a male Bluey as well, mine won't eat anything live. He had a superworm stick its pointy little front legs into his nostrils once, and now, anything that moves, he refuses to eat it. So, if he is going to eat any bugs at all, I have to kill them myself before I even attempt to feed it to him. As far as greens, I have found mixing some collard greens with a scrambled egg works out fine for me. Blueys seem to all go bonkers for scrambled eggs, and it is healthy for him. Or you could mix it with a little of the canned dogfood. (I reccommend Blue brand canned dogfood.) You could always try that. And if fuzzies are his favorite meal, then still give him one or two every once and a while. As far as fruit, I have never had a problem getting my picky eater to gobble down some Mango, or Blueberries. So, you might want to try that. But, I do reccommend that you at least get him to eat greens and fruit, protein is protein, if it is insects (which don't have as much as those fuzzies anyhow) or mice, or eggs, or dogfood.
