One of my does is sitting on a large litter (16) and I decided to start feeding her scrambled egg yolk today, and after it cooled I mixed in some meal worms, which she seems to be picking out, and not eating! Would it be possible to mix the meal worms in while the yolks are cooking, so the meal worms will get covered in the egg yolk, giving her *hopefully* more of a chance to eat them, or would they lose some of the nutritional value if they are cooked? Any advice with this is appreciated. :)

I've done it before. You might want to chop them up first, too. The more spread-out they are within the mixture, the more of a chance she has of eating them.

You can't leave a litter at 16 and expect everybody to do equally well, though.

I have tried on several occasions, with a couple different brands of mealies, and she just won't eat them. :( its not *just* with the eggs, its all the time. I'm just trying different ways to "trick" her to eat them. Honestly, I only have 1 doe that will eat them, and she and her babies have arguments over who should have which one. It's amusing to watch, especially when they each start out with their own, but then set it down to steal someone else's. *sigh*... I guess I'll just admit defeat and go buy some KMR, and other goodies.
