    I reallly want to start making my rats own food, but I'm having some trouble with some of the ingredients. One thing I'm having trouble with is dried fruit. What brand should I buy--everything seems to have such sugar in it. I know I need dried cranberries and bananas. Also, what kind of...

    My girls are fine, but my boys are so picky! I want a couple treats they can't resist! I've tried a bunch. I have their food figured out, I just need some help with the yummy treats that you only feed once a day or while training!

    What are your/links to your favorite recipes? Or maybe list some things that could be added and is shelf stable if I keep it in a sealed bag. Please help! I hate the food that is on the market because most of my rats are still basically tweens--- haha! (no older than 7 weeks)

    Just wondering if I can feed my rats the same fruit/veggie diet I give my rabbits? The bunnies get celery, romaine lettuce, and carrots three or four times a week along with timothy hay and rabbit pellets (daily) and sometimes for a little treat they'll each get a grape or a couple of craisins...

    Okay, so this thread is for people to post what they add to their rats diet to keep them happy and healthy. I know we all try hard, but sometimes, even me, get stuck for ideas as to what to add into their diet to make it more interesting, yet still balanced and healthy. Also, have you made any...

    How long do rats usually live? I've read so many different things, I don't know which to believe.. So, I thought I'd ask all of you since you all seem to know what you're talking about. Thanks!

    I have been searching (unsuccessfully) for two female goos, but all I seem to find (if anything) is males. I didn't really want males b/c I have heard that they ( even brothers) sometime start to fight as they get older and then have to be seperated, then I am in the hole b/c they are each one...

    I've always wondered... Why is it that people will boycott stores that sell puppies and kittens, but won't boycott stores like Petsmart that sell small animals. They come from small animal mills too. One of the guinea pig mills in the SE recently closed, and the couple there had 500 guinea...
