    Okay, I know on here we all love Mazuri lab blocks, but I've come up with two problems since I've started increasing my rat population and breeding 1-It's expensive stuff--$5.50 for 2lb bag 2-the blocks are too big for some of my babies to eat easily So last night the petstore was out of mazuri...

    I got a degu from this guy over the weekend, and she was in bad shape. Sue is very underweight, she has saggy skin, her teeth are bad, her wheel was too small, her cage had a lot of bare metal on the first level, she was missing hair from her tail and she even had a very bad smell to her. She...

Right now I am feeding Martins Guinea pig food and they are doing really well on that ...I was thinking of adding some chin food to it. The kind I have for my chins is Reidstra chin food...do you guys know if...
  6. General Rodent Chat
    Ok. Sooo, I've heard about housing chinchillas and degus together, and I've also a few times heard of housing degus and guinea pigs together. I also know on degus.org it says degus could also live with rabbits, but I was wondering the accuracy (for lack of a better word) of that. Regardless of...
  7. Degu Discussion
    :degu: :degu: I just can't believe it. I didn't see what all the fuss was with all the "degu" talk and today I was in the pet store buying food for my little frogs when I saw these little adorable critters! They reminded me of little squirrels without the fluffy tails. My heart was instantly...

    Unfortunatly I noticed today that Apolla has not been eating her pellets! I emptied the FULL dish tonight to add fresh pellets and I watched her.She dug around,looking for a tasty morsel,but since she didn't find any,she totally ignored the pellets! What can I do? I know they need pellets,but...
  9. Degu Discussion
    I went to a small petstore near me and found that they had the Sunseed food for Chinchillas. Since I can't find and Degu or Guinea Pig food without sugar, I was wondering if it would be ok just to give them this. Also, what else would I be able to give them in addition to their normal food?:gab:
  10. Degu Discussion
    I was wondering what sort of toys I should buy for my soon-to-be goos. Since there isn't any Degu toys, I didn't know if I should go with chin, rat, ferret, or some rabbit toys. Also, what do goos like to play with? I mean are they tunnelers like hamsters, or what? Do they like ferret hammocks...

  14. Degu Discussion
    HI, Okay to start this off I'm new to all of this, but I do have a few questions. I have read on all the sites about Degus that they're not supposed to have sugar because it can give them diabeties, I've also read that to feed them, give them guinea pig or chinchilla food. Here's the thing...
  15. Degu Discussion
    This evening I went to give the goos a treat and possible a scratch if they let me (I'm still taming them) and the greatest thing happened!!!! I held my hand out to the momma goo with a piece of guinea pig food in it (I don't like over feeding treats, so after treats they get pellets) and...

Does anyone know any food...
  17. Degu Discussion
    I'm having some problems with my Degus, but I'm not sure what to do. D: I have two, both are 1-2 years old. Jasper was my first, and I'm fairly certain he's male, but after getting my second Degu, it's hard to be sure. It goes like this. Jasper is my baby, and he's very sweet. But when my...
  18. Degu Discussion
    I'm getting my 1st degus:hapdance: and I need to know what to feed them. The owner of the rescue center I am getting them from said that I should only feed them degu food because all guinea pig and chinchilla food has molasses in it. What does everyone feed they're degus?
