I've never had that problem myself, and I feed roughly 60% rolled oats, 20% wheat and barley, 10% Chudleys Original and 10% bird seed and mealworms.

Sometimes I need to adjust the ratios or add other things depending on time of year and the condition of the mice. For example - I'd add more wheat than barley in the winter because wheat is a heating food, add more barley than wheat if the mice are getting fat as barley helps lower cholesterol, or add more seeds if the coats aren't looking too shiny. But it's always that basic mix.
