    We always fed pellets but recently the feed store accidentally gave us crumble so we tried it. Now they won't eat the pellets! They seem to love the crumble so much more! I have been reading the posts on here and looking it up on the web but getting very confused some things have said crumble is bad, is this true?

    There isn't any problem with crumble that I know of. Many feel they waste less of the pellets. I think they are the same feed, though.

    same thing happened to me. once they had crumbles, they wont touch pellets. i mix a garbage can full of scratch, layer crumbles, and the pellets i had left and thats the only way i can get rid of the pellets. soon as they are gone, nuthin but MG crumbles.
