Most of the pigs have lost one to two ounces. A few of the darlings have gained! I´m keeping with the mix, but am putting less and less of the old stuff in, and more of the new. By next week it should be all new stuff.
Chocolates m, the Hollister pigs were fed whatever pellets were donated. They must have had at least 6 or 7 different types of pellets since July!
Anyway, the pigs did the selective-feeding thing, only going for the old stuff, until they weren´t getting it any more. Then we had a few days of untouched pellets. They were still eating hay and all their veggies, so I didn´t worry too much -- I just kept giving them the new pellets. Finally they decided the new pellets weren´t poison, and now they love them. Except for the "Gerties" mix crud they were eating when I got them, I´ve never seen them run to the bowls for pellets before, but now they do. And I like these pellets -- from the listed ingredients, they seem pretty high-quality. And they were literally the only feed on the shelf not claiming to be "everything your guinea pig will ever need!"
(rereading this, I realize that yes, I do sound as sleep-deprived as I feel)
