    The girls and boys don't know what to think of the pellets the first day, they are nibbling at them today but I tell you what there is soo much less waste. It hopefully will save me some money, wouldn't that be nice?

    Good luck - mine hated them and refused to eat. I thought eventually they'd get hungry enough, but no way. I switched back.[​IMG]

    I still have two weeks to go before I start layer pellets. I'm saving back a bit of the grower crumbles for when I make the switch. I'm not too worried though. They've been eating the goat's grain pellets for weeks now.

    Mine hated the pellets too and I went back to crumbles. But they sure do love the el cheapo dog food I buy for the lost/stray hunting dogs that show up. I guess b/c it's more corn than anything else. For now, at least. Who knows what they'll make it out of with grain prices skyrocketing!
