I've ground the Startena like I've seen advised on different threads. I went in to do a search to see how long we need to grind the crumbles before they can be given the crumbles without grinding and though I couldn't find the answer to that, I did see that people warned about grinding too fine. I've been grinding mine really fine. Why is it advised not to do this?

I would think they could get dust in their lungs from breathing the fine powder.
We feed ground feed till 14 or so days. They drop alot of feed if fed crumbles too soon.
We put a pn or sheet of news paper under the feeder to give them a second chance w
at eating dropped crumbles.

Try to grind the pellets only a bit smaller than they come already. Some starter feed is pretty powdery to begin with. You only have to crush it down for about one week. At 2 weeks, they can easily eat the crumbles as they come from the bag.
