Bought a calcium block for my little Herman a couple of weeks ago. Thought it might take him a few days to get used to it but he's still not taken a bite. Not even a nibble. Just climbs all over it!

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi Sparky,
Try grating it on his food.
Kind Regards
Freddy

He gets calcium powder on his food. Just got the block for added calcium. I'll give it a try though

I just bought cuttlefish instead, he's never EVER used it and neither have my other 2 but I have it there just incase, not only that but I do use it to cover their food if I run out of limestone flour :)
