Hello all! Okay, I picked up some earthworm sticks from my local pet store. Unfortunately they are rock hard, and I don't want my axie trying to choke these down. They don't soften when I soak them either, they just dissolve. Would it be possible to grind these up, add egg, and a binder like arrowroot, and try to cook them into a softer pellet? Or should I just cut my loss, and get rid of the sticks?

the only thing I can think of apart from making them into a softer pellet would be to dissolve a load of them and then freeze them into ice cubes,
