Does anyone feed this to their rabbits? The NZ Rat Rescue shop imports this for rats, and in a few months time will start importing rabbit(2040) and guinea pig pellets as well. I'm happy to hear this, as I'm yet to find a decent pellet over here, and I know they do a good rat one, but how does their rabbit one look?

(Reuben goes nuts for the rats ones, so he's happy to hear this)

the 2030 is godawful. protein is a bit too high and fiber is absurdly low. fat is also a little high.

the 2031 high fiber looks MUCH better - protein is right in the ideal range for house rabbits, fat is a bit lower and fiber isn't great but isn't low (the best foods like oxbow and sherwood have like 24-30% fiber).

I thought there wasn't calcium info, but I finally found it on the data sheets - 1% on both, which is within the acceptable range.

I'd stay the hell away from the 2030, but the 2031 high fiber looks to be a decent pellet.

(I didn't see anything on there that said 2040)
