A good back up option
I generally prefer the garden selection by this brand because it doesn't have the cane molasses, has a natural and enticing smell and texture compared to this. However the garden select has been very difficult to find lately so this is my back up. Chinchillas shouldn't have sugar but since molasses is everything from the sugar cane except for the actual sugar part (sugar is extracted) then it's a grear back options.
Came brown and dried out
My chinchilla normally loves this food but unfortunately when I received this bag it was dried out, very crumbly, and brown instead of the normal green color and fresh scent. She has not even touched this 10 pound bag and I had to buy a new one from a pet store so she could eat.
The very best Chinchilla food!
Chewy has the best prices and it comes to your door! If you ever have issues they take care of you and treat you as if you are their only customer! This is how every business should treat their customers! A+++++ Chewy.com!!!!!!
Bag Arrived Slit Open
The bag arrived slit open along the front. You can imagine the mess. Attempted to transfer the rest of the contents to my old bag but, you can imagine that mess as well.
I use only Oxbow brand foods when I can, and I like being able to get a bulk bag for so cheap.
Good quality food
I recently switched over to this from garden select since hearing it's supposedly better although I dislike alfalfa being the main ingredient. However since I have a whole bag left over of the other one i've been mixing them so she has some options. I have noticed though she absolutely loves this one, she goes straight to the bowl when she knows i'm going to fill it up which she never did before.
My Chin Loves It
As soon as I tore open the bag, he was excited. They were fresh, sweet, and sort of a chocolately scent. He loves these pellets and it agrees with his stomach.
Bang for your buck
I believe that a 3 pound bag at my local pet stores are about $15. Therefore a 25 pound bag for about $35 is amazing. I have 2 chinchillas so I think that this bag will last me months if not over a year. I am beyond happy with what I have purchased especially with the free almost next day shipping on this very heavy bag.
Healthy food for chinchillas
My chinchillas like the pellets, and I've heard from several chinchillas parents that this is one of the best types to feed.
My chinchilla LOVES these pellets. I also buy Oxbow for my guinea pigs and they love it. Oxbow is a great brand and I have no complaints.
