    The first day I got my guineas (who were very stressed by a bad post office experience) I gave them wet crumbles mixed with a little sugar. They went bonkers over it. The second day, they ignored it and seemed to prefer the dry crumbles.

    I gave mynew chicks wet crumbles on the first day and they wouldn't touch it.

    I gave the untouched mixture to my 9 weeks old birds and they devoured it. Go figure.
