    As most of you know i run my own degu website and i'm trying to get together a list of foods that are available worldwide that are suitable for degus so people have a quick and easy resource that they can look at and double check a food is safe (i.e contains no sugar or mollasses) or look for...

    What Guinea Pig food do you use? I'm looking for a new food, I don't want it to contain anything but pellets, and they cannot have cane molasses in it. They have discontinued stocking the Living World Extruded I've been useing :( and so far know where here has anything like it :( What a bummer...

    I'm wondering what everyone else feeds their Degus? Mine really enjoy this new extruded Guinea Pig Pellet I am buying from "Living World", no molases or anything in it, so far it's the best thing I can find and I'm quite happy with it. My Degu Mix... I tried the parsley flakes in the last...

    Do those of you with multiple piggies notice that they make alot of noise at night? I took care of a guinea pig for a couple months and she was always quiet at night but she lived alone so that might be why. My cousin had a pair of guinea pigs when she was younger and apparently they were very...

    I just addopted two three your old male degus from Petco. how often should I give them dust baths do they need a deep cage like gerbals and what other basics should I know

    A bit of a question here. When I feed my degus timothy hay, I notice that their cage, in the end, is much more filled with droppings than it is when they're eating alfalfa-based pellets. (This is not what they're eating, it was an experiment, simply because I noticed this). Timothy-based pellet...

  13. Degu Discussion
    Hey everyone, I will be moving to my own house here in a few months and I'm trying to decide if degus are right for me. I have done a lot of research so far and they seem like really cool little animals. But I'm worried because they are so prone to diseases. If I make sure they have a...

    This may seem strange, but I can't find Chinchilla pellets anywhere. All the Chinchilla foods are mixes...A good degu diet is a 50/50 mix of guinea pig and chinchilla pellets, or so I've heard. Is there something else I can mix? Like hamster/gerbil pellets or rabbit pellets or something?

    I WAS WONDERING IF THERE ARE ANY BRITS OUT THERE WITH DEGUS.. I KNOW THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE STATES HAVE THEM, BUT WHAT ABOUT OVER HERE.. :pd2:
