Exclamation Picky Chinchillas

I have 2 chinnies and recently changed pellets to Burgess Excel. The male (Cesar) doesn't seem to like the new pellets, but the pregnant female eats it.
They were on Minimagic (a South African breeder makes these pellets) and he wasn't fussy at all.
I don't know what to do. Should I give Cesar time to adjust or go back to the old food?

Was there a reason you switch foods? I'm not familiar with either of those foods, but chin food should be alfalfa or timothy hay based pellet only food. No fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, or animal products in it. Along with unlimited timothy hay. If the old food was a better food it might be worth switching back. If the Burgess is better then I would give him time to adjust, also make sure you switch slowly like over the course of a couple weeks, to avoid stomach upset.
