hello,

ime, most westerns will switch to f/t fairly easily. i have 10 that all eat f/t with easily now. some slam it off tongs, and some have to have it laying in the cage overnight. i do have one that was a picky feeder and took about 6 months. now she slams f/t regularly. i have a male, that will only eat live, and he is about 9 months. eats every time even in shed, but only live. they are all individuals...

i have weaned a couple off. i started by offering fresh killed off tongs. let them get used to feeding regularly off of them. maybe 4 or 5 meals, and then try switching to f/t. you might also try scenting a f/t with fresh mouse bedding. if they take that, then scent less and less.

keep us posted...

jonathan
