homemade mouse diet safe?
Hi I'm new here and just wanted to know if my diet plan is going to work for 2 female mice. The reason I decided to make my own diet is that most commercial rodent diets today are full of terrible potentially harmful ingredients leading me to try to create an all natural diet that is based on what they'd eat in the wild. Lastly this diet is a work in progress
feed 2-3 tablespoons of grain mix daily during evenings but don't leave out more then 2 hours (cooked rice and oats spoil quickly)
daily grain mix:
1 part cooked brown rice
2 parts cooked rolled oats
1/2 part millet
1/2 part cooked pearled barley
1/8 part or less unshelled sunflower seeds (can be left in tank 24 hours)
Treats: small mealworms(all insects from pet store not wild) once every 2 weeks. small crickets 1-2 per mouse daily or every other day(don't want too much protein).vegies/fruit- feed once daily bite sized portion or 1 tablespoon of cooked peas, berries, cooked broccoli, ripe banana, carrots, apples, or kale, maybe occasional cooked chicken. So what do you think?
