so ive mixed up some home made rat-chow from some of the recommended items on links found on the forum.

rice puffs
wheat puffs
sunflower seed
large rolled oats
dry veggie pasta
soy nuts
all unsalted
(no dried fruits and veggies, they get fresh stuff)

but ive noticed a quite the increase is poo odor, and am concerned that maybe its wreaking havoc with their digestive systems.. any tips/advice welcomed.

oh, i also still give them lab blocks as well

It could just be them getting used to the new diet, especially if its mostly stuff they've never had before. Is the poo just smelly or is it a different consistency as well? Its probably just the food change messing with their tummies so I wouldn't worry just yet

What brand of lab blocks do you feed? Any and all dietary changes should be made very slowly, otherwise digestive upset usually happens.
