She told me that they aren't eating the mazuri yet but they might be now. I suggested that she squish it in with the greens. All 3 are gaining weight so that's good...

They have finally realized that mazuri is food, i have actually seen one fully munching on it, the other two still kinda nibble

One thing you can do is use a Ninja or some other device to chop up greens and mix the Mazuri in with it. I do that for one of my picky torts. Works great.

Cool to hear they are taking to the Mazuri. Once in a great while (about once a month) they would get microwave prepared hard-boiled egg.

A little water in a ceramic safe microwave dish, beat the water into the egg and then 'nuke' it for about two minutes. Two eggs would be mixed into about 10 pounds of greens. So not practical is so small an amount, but once in awhile if you make egg salad sandwiches, a very small amount of plain egg is a good thing. Similar to that occasional bug they may eat as they graze, for protein and all.
