What brand of mouse food do you feed your mice? I want to get their diet healthy!
Adult mice have the same nutritional requirements as adult rats. IIRC you have rats so you can feed them the rat mix. If you don't have rats then you can google 'the shunamite diet', or you can buy several different commercial mixes and mix them together.
Thanks! I have been feeding rat food to them. I'm gonna order that food you mentioned! It sounds like there's a lot of variety in there!
The shunamite diet is one you mix up yourself There's the version based on rabbit food which is easier to do as you don't need to supplement it, or there's the version based on straights which has a lot more variety but it a bit harder for the beginner as it needs calcium and vitamin D supplementing.
Mine has selective mouse with apple and hazel nut as his main but he has a bit of my rat mix and fresh but he likes the selective food best
Thank you both so much! Is it the same thing on ratrations?
Rat Rations is straights, so yes Just make sure each piece of the mix is quite small as mice obviously don't eat a lot in a day.
