I'd wonder about the alfalfa. I gave my boys Reggie Rat for a while, and they did like it, but they like a grain mix more. Sheesh they scarf that stuff! :lol:

the 5.5% ash always worries me, but i have fed mine reggie before, As you are in England, try the rat nuggets from Pets at Home. Its a good all rounder, but it looks boring, so add nice things too

Reggie rat is a major no no, never feed you ratties that! it has just enough nutrition for them to survive in it, and has tons of additives to make it look pallatable to us. Reggie is ick!

I use reggie rat about two times a week a small handful each time. Then on top of that they get three types of whole grain cerial, soy beans,bananna chips,pasta, fruit and veggies, and then mazuri lab blocks daily. By morning I have to fill all their bowls up. Nothing goes to waste with my ratties.
