    Hi! My almost 6 week olds are still eating primarily mash. I do add it crumbles to get them used to it but they definitely prefer the mash. I've been adding more and more crumbles each day, is this the correct way to do it? I am almost out of mash so what would happen if I just gave crumbles? Anyone have any tips or had a similar situation?

    We did a direct swap from mash to pellets and they took right to it. I would think you are doing it in a perfect way and they should be fine on the crumbles when you run out of mash.
