I'm trying to get them to eat all the powder and fine stuff left (using milled feed) by mixing it with water, and they won't eat it :-( What is going on? I thought they loved wet food?
I'm adding water until it's the consistency of thick oatmeal. Not attempting to ferment, just taking the powdery stuff left at the bottom of the feeder and trying to wet it to the point where they can eat it. Should I be making it soupy, like for them to almost drink it? I don't even want to attempt fermenting unless they are actually going to eat it. I don't want to waste even more feed :-(How much water are you mixing the feed with - getting at whether you are offering a soupy mix or something closer to a really thick oatmeal? Are you offering it fresh or allowing it to set (and possibly spoil) first? Are you attempting just dampened food or are you attempting fermented feed?
