PostSubject: My fry love the Sweet Potatoes.   Sun May 27, 2012 6:03 pm

My fry like the Sweet Potatoes better than cucumber or zucchini. I like the Sweet Potatoes because they sink, no seeds and don't fall apart in the water when you take them out. Sweet Potatoes are more nutritious for people than cucumbers but does that hold true for BN? Has anyone fed their fry mainly Sweet Potatoes?

Mine love sweet potato but there are so many veg that are accepted, a varied diet is better for them.

You got to slice the sweet patato thin and nuke it. I put mine in a bowl of water and microwave it on high for 3 min.if it doesn't sink on it's own cook it some more.

You are right, cooking takes a great deal of vitamins out of it. Also it eliminates virtually all vitamin C. Cooking also has the effect to break down fibrous material (that is why most people like to cook or steam their vegetables) and fibre is what long intestine creatures like plecos need.

Marrow is large zucchini
In the UK zucchini is courgette which is baby marrow
