Question Skye being picky about sprouts now aghh...

I started sprouts finally, and I did the soaking for 12 hours. I figured if there's no shoots visible, she'll eat it...but she doesn't want them at all because they're wet. Should I dry the sprouts off a bit or would that make them go bad faster?

Sorry to keep making threads! I just wish she wasn't so picky about everything. I really don't want to give up though!

I always soaked them overnight then drained etc and left them till the next morning to feed. They should only have a tiny shoot, if any, by then and are dry again, so still very like a seed. Or you can soak during the day then leave to dry overnight to feed at breakfast.

UPDATE: I tried it out, but the sprouts stayed pretty wet and then they started to smell sour so I threw them out. They take a little too long to dry, shoot...
