Awesome!! I have had ones take it if you just sit motionless with it, but not often. I always try that at least once. Good for you for being persistant! Sometimes you just have to pester them until they give in and eat! I had an amazon (one of my holdbacks)that refused to eat and I finally got fed up and chased her all over her tub with a mangled, legless, squashed pinky. It took 45 minutes but she finally took it. The next time only took 15 minutes and then after that it took nothing more than opening the lid and presenting. Hope yours continues to eat for you. Make sure you wait before feeding again. I find if I offer too soon to the slow eaters they'll refuse. I tend to wait 7-10 days before offering so that they'll be good and hungry. Once they get the hang of it, you can go to every 5-7 until they are off pinkies.
