changing protein source in shunamite mix

in my shunamite mix i usually use soya flakes or burns dog kibble as the protein part of the mix (10%). I was wondering if i could switch these for rat food (science selective). i was confused as i know some people use rat food as part of their base mix so i assumed it wouldn't be high enough in pro...

Re: High copper replacement for AH

probably a silly question but since the Denes wholegrain mixer is a dog food would I use it as the protein part of my mix? i usually use burns.

Re: New rat room and ferplast mito construction

my move centred around my rats too. my family thought i was mad, the cages were the first thing to be set up, then I spent the day finishing the rat room and I hadn't even unpacked any clothes for today. Everything is still in boxes, I actually slept at my boyfriends last night as I couldn't find th...

Re: Where should i keep my cage?

if it was me I'd keep her where you are the most as she'll be especially lonely now that she's a lone rattie.

Re: scatter feeding?

if your ratties wee all over the substrate then a litter tray hung up with substrate in is a good idea. I scatter feed dry food but fresh food tends to get hung in veggie baskets, toilet roll tubes, hidden in egg cartons etc and sloppy food gets put in a bowl. I find there's less mess if you keep sc...

Re: big cage recommendations?

if you dont have room for a very big footprint but want a big cage then a tall and narrow aviary would be good. the liberta happy house also has a small footprint but is really quite large. if you have room for a larger footprint then i'd go for an explorer/ SRS/ Ferplast duetto/ ferplast mito etc. ...
