You can experiment by giving a little bit of food and see if they eat it. If they eat that food, you give them a little bit more. Take care to clean the remaining food after they finish eating.

You should update these parts on the original thread instead of making a new thread for every journal entry. Otherwise it's kind of like sending a new email for every paragraph/sentence of a message.
