Hi all, I am going to make my own mix now that the cavy sanctuary is moving further away. I read through all the posts and I have come to the same recipe as Piggyhouse 90 on page 3 of this thread.
There was another recipe earlier back that Jess posted which had Hygain Showtorque with added mill mix, oats, lupins, chaff, full fat soybean meal and one capful of molasses to moisten. It looks like the mix at the cavy sanctuary now has Workhorse instead of Hygain showtorque.
So my first question is did Piggyhouse 90 get the recipe right? Her thread was never answered.
I checked out the mix at Pet Cafe and it is Breeders choice. It is also Breeders choice at City Farmers. I am not so keen on Breeders choice because it doesn't have a lot of chaff and the chaff that is in it is lucerne. I also found it powdery.
Does anyone know about the guinea pig mix from Pet Stock. I found it today and it looks quite good but it is low in chaff so that would need to be added. This would be easier than making the mix myself so if anyone else has checked it out can they please let me know what they think. I would add more chaff because I don't want my piggies to get too fat.
