They only leave the pellets / Picky eating

Okay, so my mice aren't 'very' picky. They eat everything in the mix, except for the small pellets - shaped like rabbit pellets, little sticks - which they leave in the bottom of the bowl. Should I leave those until they eat them, or just keep refilling the bowl since it's only one item left behind?

Those little pellets are often of hardly any value nutritionally, so it doesn't matter. You can just refill the bowl Smile I'm pretty sure that's what Norman's Mom said on TFM, at least.

Alright. I'm just lucky they don't leave anything else Laughing . Since I'm running out of the current mix I'll start on switching them over to a different food that won't have any pellets anyways! Thanks.

I dont remember what mix your using but it sounds like you're describing alfalfa pellets. I see lots of people say their mice ignore them and agree with Artist that it's no biggie.

Pretty sure it is alfalfa pellets, yeah. The mix is some crappy wild harvest food that I (Stupidly) got when I got them. Woops. I forgot which type specifically, as it's in a storage bin now, but nonetheless, we're making the switch to the good stuff soon.
