Pellets Not taking to KM pellets

I switched from Oxbow Cavy Cuisine to KM pellets around 2 weeks ago.
My boys went from eating their daily serving to pretty much not touching it.

They love their KM hay, but not taking at all to the pellets.


They are getting plenty of hay and the are good with their veggies (meaning they are getting their daily dose of vitamin c).

How long should I give them to take to their new pellets?
 
Did you do an immediate changeover or a slow mixing? If the former, I'd go back to your old pellets and slowly mix in the KM pellets over a two week period, with one week in being at a half and half mix. I did that when I changed from a crappy store brand to Oxbow, and after about a week my boys stopped looking for the dried fruit and nuts from the former brand, and now happily eat the Oxbow pellets.
 
I slowly mixed mine as well, and my girl won't touch any of the food, not even the Oxbow bits. I paid over 25 for it and the shipping, so it's a bit frustrating.
 
I will try the mix.
I did that when I transitioned them to the oxbow and they would pick the original out and tilt the bowl to get at it.

But to get them to eat the km I will try it again. This 20 lb bag was too pricey for the to pick over it.

thx
