Risa and Rena have not been eating out of the bowl and its probably because I made the mistake of making their soup with quail instead of chicken so they are not used to it but Rikku loves it. I have just been hand feeding Rena and Risa.

I am worried a little. They have not been losing weight but shouldnt they be gaining? How much should they be eating? When I hand feed Rena she will only eat a half of a cube but I think she might be eating when Im not around unless the other 2 are eating a lot. They eat about 5-6 cubes of soup a day.
Yeah. They can be unbelievably picky and stubborn. Stay the course until they are eating adequate amounts. Then we can start sneaking in some other stuff.
Don't let that hold up Rikku's progress though. If he's willing to eat anything you put in front of him... do it! Sometimes curiosity and competition will jumpstart the willingness of the reluctant ferrets to try something new. Try giving him some 1/2-1 inch chunks of meat and see what he thinks.
