These girls would eat anything else (my toes included) other than their starter crumbles. I'm very tempted to switch to layer pellets, though I know it's early but they don't have any grower pellets that are organic! They refuse to eat the 'fines', which unfortunately is what most of the crumbles are. They really rather eat 'larger' objects - rice, bugs, seeds dug up from my plants, more bugs, weeds, pine needles... just not crumbles. Would it be okay to use layer pellets, but supplement it with something high in protein like my (unfortunately non-organic) turkey/gamebird starter? Extra bugs? Grains? thanks!
