Converting

Ice gets fed a ratio of 80% zoopreem fruit pellets and 20% seed as fed by her previous owner

In the morning when I feed her she seems to eat all the seeds first and just leaves The pellets for later.. But she HAS to dip the pellets in her water bowl to make things harder for me .. LOL

I would like to just give the seeds for treats and just use the pellets for food.

I've tried putting less seed in every morning.. But I think ice realizes it and she literally complains. Haha she won't shut up until she sees the seeds..

So any help getting her weaned of the seeds??

Thanks!

Feed her just the bowl of pellets in the morning when she will be most hungry then give fruit and veg separately

I've tried that.. Haha she throws out the pellets looking for the seeds
Then when she figures out they arnt there she gets loud .. Haha

I think I may try the idea of veggies and fruit in the morning ..and pellets combined then seeds later

I will try this tommorow..
