They usually start off pretty slow first day or so. Once they get a taste for it though they generally pick up the pace pretty rapidly. I'll offer it to them a couple times a day until they gain an appreciation and then increase to three or four times a day from there.
Today it seemed they preferred to push it out of the bowl and lick it from the blanket. I split them into two groups for their first feeding. Green girl joined the fatty's. The other seven did a fairly good job of finishing up the bowl. Brown gets the gold star for the day for staying on task. Copper, currently wearing a tan collar gets award for most messy! Wearing it more than eating it I think.
