I rescued two male degu that are about a year old, I bought degu pellets and timothy hay and they get a baby carrot and a slice of sweet potatoe each day. Thats what they were fed before but I also have three rats and nine mice that I make a mix of cerial grains and nuts for treats. The degus pick through it and eat the oat meal first then the nuts. So far I haven't found anything saying the oat meal was OK for them. Does anyone here feed it to them? Thanks!
