    Default Legumes and such..

    I have a young special squirrel.
    He can not put food to mouth. Forrest has learned to eat nuts. Some must be opened for him.
    I read legumes were a good source of protein and fiber. Raw soaked ...does it matter? He gives up one foods that give him too much trouble.

    Hello and welcome to TSB Forrestsmom!

    How old is your baby?

    If under a certain age he needs to be on formula. And then HHB's. Henry's Healthy Blocks.

    They don't thrive at all on nut diets!

    Can you post pictures?

    Thanks for helping your baby!

    Check back here often for more info and advice. Lot of good help on this board!

    We are well past formula now.
    It's still offered only due to his special front legs.
    We believe it has to do with the formula.
    He is a non-releaseable kiddo. I'd like to give him a nice varied diet. We are building him a lg outdoor enclosure. We want him to live as close to a squirrel as possible. So any food ideas are helpful. Hes picky.
