I have a Cherry Head (redfoot) and he is pretty easy to feed. Greens (dandelion, escarole, grape leaves, hibiscus leaves and flowers, Rose of Sharon leaves and flowers etc. for two days, than fruit one day...anything but citrus and banana, and then some protean on the forth day. Some people feed their torts Mazuri and greens...some people feed only Mazuri in the winter when they can't get any fresh stuff.
