Then my extras...

Then a little bit of burns brown rice and fish dog food

Does this sound ok?

That sounds like a very nice mix to me. Burns is good dog food. I don't think you need rabbit food or cereal though, there's nothing in them that isn't in the other, higher quality food you're giving them ;)

ok i wont add the rabbit food or cereal. The burns dog food contains: Whole grain brown rice, ocean fish meal, peas, oats, chicken fat, sunflower oil, seaweed..not sure if this is ok to add? even if i did add it, it would only be a small amount as my mice are a bit on the chubby side :oops: but thanks i can order everything now and not have to worry about giving them all the wrong food as this is my first attempt at making my own mix! x
