If they're eating something and the food falls under their neck, I pick it up and give it back to them, but then they refuse and demand a new one or they'll throw what I assume is a temper tantrum? I know they're not humans, but if I try to give it back to her she starts moving her head away and wheeks in anger unless I give her another one. C'mon guys, you're wasting the food. :hmm::hmm::hmm:

I have never seen that, if ours drop food when hand feeding they will accept it back off me. Do they like what you are offering them.

I used to offer Cookie green bean and she'd turn her head away when realising what it was :))
