The Grazing Tortoise Seed Mix is what I use in my pens. It contains:
- Crimson Clover
- Red Clover
- Creeping Red Fescue
- Turnip Greens
- Kentucky Blue Grass
- Orchard Grass
- Wheat Grass
- Oat Grass
- Rye Grass
- Timothy Grass
These seeds were picked for their nutritional value (fiber, calcium, protein etc)as well as their palatability. I also grow dandelion chickweed and plantain in the pens but, didn't include it in the mix. They can be purchased separately and are best grown in pots or a garden.
Here are some pictures of Jesse's leopard tortoise zippy enjoying it.
Some seeds are coated with Nitro-Coat Organic, which is an OMRI listed coating. This coating uses all organic ingredients: the proper rhizobacteria, a Calcium Carbonate coating that is naturally water absorbing to speed seed germination, and an OMRI listed organic adhesive.
