My girls refuse to eat the colored circular pellets within the vitasmart vitakraft seed mix. Left only pellets and some scarce pinch of seeds from 12-6 am....they'd rather starve. Didn't eat it. So I offered their usual seeds. Is it worth trying again or should I leave them alone?

I feed my mouse Sunseed Vita parakeet and he also refuses to eat the colored pellet things. I have to idea what nutritional value they hold, but I would also like to know.

After taking a quick look here: http://www.petsmart.com/small-pet/food/vitakraft-vitasmart-complete-nutrition-hamster-food-zid36-1920/cat-36-catid-600005 (not sure what mix you get)

It looks like there are a lot of vitamin supplements piled in the ingredients, I'm assuming that's where the colored pellets come in. I can see why they may not taste good, but they may be missing out on essential nutrients; however I'm no expert.
I would try feeding fruits and vegetables that include the vitamins in question. Variety is key!  Yay
