We included a timeout between pellets to stop the mice from taking one pellet, dropping it, and immediately grabbing the next one.  We set this to 15 seconds by default but it can be easily changed.  In the "a_header" tab in the Arduino IDE, change the number "15" in this line to update it:

int timeout = 15; //timeout between pellets in seconds
