    I scatter feed. That way, they all have to run around to find the food.

    I'd then monitor each and every bun to see if somebun is missing out.

    I also seperate Ginger to give her extra food.

    Hand feed, although, with the prof fibre, at the moment, i'm using bowls for the outsiders.

    I'm thinking of going with a bowl each, cos once their eating there normally focused on their own bowl

    If, like me, you have one who eats faster than the other, be aware of how one will go to the other bowl

    I haven't voted cos it's a bit complicated

    Mini and Mischa are easy, they eat about the same pace, are the same size, don't fight etc. so with them I scatter feed pellets and put greens in a large saucer designed for under garden pots. I used to scatter feed greens too but it makes everything wet

    Nutmeg and Smudge on the other hand are a bit more difficult. I do the same with greens but with pellets I hand feed one or two to get them on opposite sides of the room and then I put a pile of pellets in front of them and supervise. Nutmeg eats slower than Smudge but as she's a bit smaller she also gets less so that balances it out. I normally divide their daily pellet allowance into two, one lot in the morning and one lot in the evening and then each one of those I divide into one third and two thirds, Nutmeg gets the one third, Smudge gets the two thirds. And this way they usually finish about the same time.
