Since I'm new to all of this, I was wondering if I should leave the pellets in Mr Rox's bowl every day and just add more or if is best to change them out all the way and give him a fresh pile each morning?

Please and Thank you. c:

I don't know if this is wrong or not, but I will personally leave the pellets in for two days. If there's poop in it obviously I'll replace it but they don't really seem keen on pooping in their food most days and if I leave it in for two days, they finish it. I think as long as it's not soiled, it should be okay to leave them for a little bit.

Wow, Rox is a hay-hog while nibbling on his pellets and inhaling his greens.
But thanks, I thinking 2 days is a good time to let him eat them before I swap for fresher ones.
