I ordered the Maintenance and Show Rabbits blend. Please tell me why it took this long for someone to come up with this blend of food for rabbits? Dude, do rabbits come by soy, corn, and sugar cane fields in the wild? Is that why so much molasses and corn and soy are used in commercial foods? I am still giving them grass, timothy and oat hay, as much as they want. But I am keeping their bowls full of these pellets and they can eat as much or as little as they wish. I would definitely NOT do that with other brands of pellets, including Oxbow, which I believe is the tippy top of rabbit nutrition in the commercial feed world.
I bought a bag and had a free sample with it. I know it is good for them because they do not like this food the way they like other pellets. They will eat it because I will not feed them anymore of the store bought pellets they are used to. I think they just miss the sweeter, junk food version of pellets with the molasses and all the corn bi-products. McDonalds vs. organic, whole, home-cooked food. Their coats are about the same, but they always had nice shiny fluffy coats. The ammonia urine smell is gone gone gone. GONE.
Also, their fresh pooped fecals do not smell anymore. Before, the fresh fecals had a weird onion burger/oxidated oniony kind of odor. Now, nothing. No odor at all. And they seem to be pooping a lot more (A WHOLE LOT MORE) even though they are eating less of the pellets.
Now don't think my babies are suffering. They get treats ALL the time. I buy the organic freeze dried fruit at the healthfood store, they get raw shelled pumpkin seeds, oats, craisins...and they still get their spring mix/herb mix salads once a day.
I am very happy with this food and will not be purchasing anything else but Sherwood Forest Natural Rabbit pellets in the future.
The only issue I have is that the shipping cost doubles the price of the food. But you have to do what you have to do to keep the babies healthy.
Hey, and check out their blog! Very cute and entertaining.
