Well it seems the more expensive certain treats are or the more time comsuming it is to make certain treats, fiona only seems to like regular things like sunflower seed which is included in her everydiet and natural peanuts, which she gets sparingly. but I want her to like good things for her like carrots and veggies, and she hardly ever eats them, she'll maybe take a nibble then leave it. Is there anyways I can give her the good stuff?

Out of curiosity, chrisstrikeagain, why do you say corn is terrible? I assume you're talking about non-dried corn.

Most of my rats seem to enjoy frozen veggies over cooked. How did you give them to her, taralyncouture?

Lettuce is great, but try and stay away from Iceberg. It's mostly water, has no nutritional value and may cause diarrhea. Other lettuces are GREAT!

I have a thing against corn...its nondigestible or hard to digest and I don't know if it was nutritional value. DRIED, I'd never do with my girls...but they don't like it anyway.

I guess I'd consider cooked corn for them. but I myself don't even eat it. if its hard to digest,why eat it...like rawhide.

my girls LOVE corn... frozen, cobs or cooked... but they wont touch carrot unless its frozen!! the only cooked veggie i give them is mashed potato... every other veggie is either fresh or frozen, which is what they prefer.

... corn is BAD? my babies absolutely love corn, and by the way, my Lulu was picky until she saw Piggle eating all of the good stuff and her thieving little ratty instincts kicked in and she began stealing the food from piggle haha.

why eat it
have you ever had corn on the cob a.k.a. fresh corn? It's heaven on a stick lol. Greens are probably better for ratties anyway but YOU should taste the awesomeness of CORN lol. Hard to digest.....it's worth it! ;)
