Quick update for all the amazing people helping me, after refusing to give her feeders today, I managed to get her to eat a piece of apple and pepper, still no greens but it’s better than nothing and energy

hi! i had a hard time feeding my bb greens so I got him bee pollen powder and he started eating his greens! if that doesn't work try dried flowers you can buy them at most pet stores I haven't tried them yet but I will soon! and if none of those work try not feeding her for a few days and just offer her greens for a week most likely that will work!

Hello,

That is great you did get her to eat a little bit, maybe she will eventually eat some greens
soon. They can be very stubborn though!
I agree, relocation stress definitely causes issues sometimes so that could be part of the
appetite decrease.
How is her toe looking now? It should hopefully improve soon, just keep an eye on it for
awhile.
Keep us posted on her!

Honestly her leg felt less firm yesterday, not fully squishy but softer, I didn’t squeeze hard at all just incase it was painful, but yeah I’ll keep everyone updated, she’s got her fresh bugs arriving today which I plan to gutload on courgette carrot and spring greens as well as dusting with calcium, and then hopefully get her to eat some greens soon enough
