One of the things you're seeing right now is the benefits of raw. As frustrating as it is. These guys are getting a good meal and then they can go for long periods of time without food. They want their kibbles. This is something they couldn't do before on the kibble without feeling the ill effects. It's not good for them but they can do it and as you're seeing they're starting to recognise what you're feeding is indeed food. That's most of the battle. I found just before my little girls suddenly switched, I had to scruff to get them started and then it was like "oh well, I'm hungry and this is food" and then they would eat it from the spoon. It was almost like they were going oh, ya right...this is food, not the other stuff. I found that once kibble was out of the equation, the hard core hold outs would flip within a few days. Once they start eating willingly from the spoon it's only a matter of time... you're doing great...so are they. They're hard core kibble addicts, give yourself a pat on the back. We can do this. You can do this You'll get that stubborn little sod, Buster eating raw you'll see This is the monotonous part of the switch. You've found the idea that you're going to work with. Everyone will eat it but you have to supervise, they won't eat it on their own. Right now, you're trying to work the kibbles imprint from their mind. Shortly, they will start to look at the food that your giving them as their primary food and they will start to eat it on their own.
