It seems that the food I had been feeding my 3 Degu girls is currently not available - the Versele-Laga Chinchilla and Degu Complete. I decided to try this new V-L formula. But for Degus - please note that this formula - the Nature Forage blend - DOES contain saccharides (sugars) that Degu should not have in bulk. DO NOT use this as your PRIMARY Degu food, but OK as an occasional treat. My 3 picky eaters really Love it -well, most of it. I thought the hay mixed in was nice - but they just leave it behind uneaten in their bowls. This hay is more straw-like than the nice hay they get in their hay bins. Overall better suited for the Chinchillas it is labeled for.
when i saw "forage blend" i ordered immediately because my chinchilla loves foraging. unfortunately this product didnt wow either her, or myself. there wasnt much of a mix or selection of morsels for her, the timothy hay was not vivid green like her usual, and upon opening the bag, i wasnt sure if the product had a distinct smell, or if it was stale. but it smelled a little on the stale side, and i didnt even think to check if it had an expiration date. i will not be buying this product again, the amount of hay in here didnt make me feel like this purchase was worthawhile since i always supplement her diet with seperately bought timothy hay. 3 stars for average but a decent price point.
Our chinchilla Sebastian love the Nature Forage food! Great assortment of hays, morsels and vegetable pieces! Good stuff!
