Two guineas were severely sick when they gave them to me. Rabbit pellets and stale hay is not a diet. It's a torture.
There's no downside to air drying though, right?

That's like eating nothing but stale cereal :(

Cereal at least has some nutrients -.- She was so thin she bit me whenever she was touched, and you could count her ribs and spine plus feel the sharp bony tips of the hips. She got better though. Less grumpy too. we dodged a failing liver problem. Barely.

I don't think so, unless someone JUST sprayed some perfume or whatever LOL. I've got fry in jars now, so there is 0 tolerance for air stuff within that room.

I don't because I don't touch their food with my hands. I have rounded tweezers that I use to pick up the pellets and drop them in, and I use a kitchen spoon handle to dispense of the softened frozen bloodworms.

On a related note... I hate touching the frozen bloodworms. When I take a cube and chop it into little bits it just makes me gag. The things we do for our fish...

I use a toothpick for the bloodworms, after they thaw in a measuring cup I have just for the fish. Left overs go to the platys.
