I've switched Grizz over to Oxbow and I've been feeding her away from Lee, but she tends to graze all day and I can't keep her separate all the time. I've been taking her out quite a few times to go munch by herself, but it would be awesome if I could just switch them both over to Oxbow. Is three months too early for Lee to make the switch? I know it's lower in protein so I'd need to supplement her somehow.

Oxbow at three months is fine. Once a week or every other week, give Lee a protein boost meal.

My girls are 4 mths old and I'm still feeding them the Oxbow Mouse & Young Rat which is the higher protein version. I read somewhere that you can keep them on that version of it until they were 8-9 mths old and then switch over to the adult. Mine have been on the Oxbow since I got them at 4 weeks old.

Protein levels shouldn't be higher than 16% after three to six months I believe.
