Question What If Your Piggies Don't Eat Mix?

I posted about Sam and Leslie, with photos, many times. (See the coroplast thread, for one).

Of my six GPs, they are the only two who barely ever touch their mix, and I have tried a few different brands. Yes, I always wash the bowl each time. I serve the mix hours either before or after serving anything else, and never with anything. I have been serving less and less greens. They also almost never touch oranges. I can't believe the amount of greens, carrots, and apples (etc) I serve is adequate.

Should I just wait until they eat it? Should I stop feeding greens and hay until they do? Should I replace uneaten mix with new mixin a clean bowl every so often?

Advice?

Ginger & Olly both like Oxbow's Cavy Cuisine, so I've never had a problem. Only Olly likes oranges; Ginger never touches them. Which mix do your other piggies like best? Are they as picky as Sam & Leslie?

They all get the same mix, either Sun Seed or LM.

Chris and Frosty seem to enjoy it, and Jennifer and Chip almost as much. Sam and Leslie are very different in their preferences.

Maybe they just don't like the pellets? I feed mine KMs and they all love it. It's the only thing I can think of.
