Want to fatten up those new guys? If you noticed on Gus' post with pictures, they have taken bites out of the cactus. I have been buying the French Haricots Verts (frozen-green beans) from trader Joe's frozaen section and boiling them. All the Chucks love them and can't get enough! They must taste like cactus. Also, Chucks like pulling flowers off of stems. It seems to really get them going. Go figure. So when I give them the green beans, I hold a long bean up and they will stand, balanced on back legs and tail and eat out of my hand, tugging on the bean to break it off and then going immediately for what is left. Some of them are wary of the hand at first, and plainly want to dive on it but won't eat until you drop it, but they ALL come around eventually! LOL
