after a rather brisk ride today (i say brisk, we were chased by some cows) :lol: i finally remembered to have a look at the ingredients to the alen and page 'old faithful's special blend' here it is:

where there are stars is where the text was too bad to read
by descending weight:
25%-40% Barley
**-10% molasses#Maize
calcium carbonate
expelled linseed
oat straw
sodium chloride
Di-calcium phosphate
expelled soya oil
FOS/MOS prebiotic
herbs (they wrote herbs twice) :roll:

and it says:

Protein 10.0%
Fibre 7.0%
Moisture 13.3%
Vit A 10,000 iu/kg
Vit D 1,500 iu/kg
Vit E 80 iu/kg
OIL 3.0%
Ash 7.5%

what do we think then?

I'm having the same issue, I didnt mind buying expensive rat food as a base when I only had a few mice because it lasted for ages but now I'm going through loads each week. Luckily I still find oats and seed fairly cheap. Ive been looking for the big bags of greyhound food that you use Cait, but I cant seem to find any, is yours from a specialist shop?

Rabbit food doesn't seem too effective, they pick bits out and leave quite a lot, I think Dog kibble may be the way to go.
Any suggestions on other makes?
