Wouldn't touch it with a bargepole; got some with Lucifer and she refused to eat it.

ATM my buns have A&P, Science Selective and Pets at Home nuggets mixed together.

They are fine to mix in with a high fibre pellet like A&P as long as your bun doesn't selectively feed (mine wolf anything and everything down :lol: )

Fidget has it and loves it, tried her on lots of different pellets including excel, SS and johnsons but they all gave her the trots

I think someone said they are just relabelled excel pellets.

I looked at the ingredients and they seem the same, I am changing Lola to these. Mind you she would eat a scabby donkey between two mucky mattresses the little troglet!

I don't think they can be...I have Excel for my oldies and the Pets at Home Nuggets smell totally different and are a slightly different shade of brown.

Molly and jack are currently on Excel at the moment, I was thinking of changing as i'm a little worried about thier poos(see diet thread).

Sophie came to me with them, but she is going over to A&P ASAP. Sorry to hijack, but as she is 8 weeks, how long before I can move her over? Lady I bought her said 12 weeks then move her over very slowly.

They are also a different shape

Molly use to be on these but they had a tendency to give her a sticky bum, although to be fair in hindsight we were probably letting her have too many as we were going by what it said on the packet. :oops: She is now on SS.

She did love the PAH nuggets to the point of obsession, we always thought she was just a greedy guts (which she is) but one day we ran out of the guinea pig equivalents so at bed time gave the piggys a small handfull of the rabbit ones. The next morning when I went to give the piggys their breakfast veggies they were all at the front of the cage, snatched the greens out of my hands, threw them onto the floor then carried on squeaking and trying to get to my hands!! :shock: They NEVER throw away greens - but they were definitely after some more nuggets!!

all mine have it, they have been on it for over a year and its the best food ive given them, i gave them excell once but it seemed richer so i found this better, and mine have never had any problems, and they go crazy for it!

I can not recommend SS highly enough. Mine love it, and do really well on it. It's higher fibre than Excel (don't know about P@H) so would be good for poos.

I'm thinking about switching from Excel to SS, especially as they are bringing out a new range, including a mature pellet! It is better for them in my opinion as it's higher in fibre! x

My captain has always been on pets at home pellets, junior and now he is a big boy, adult. He wont eat other rabbit food, not even excel, which i also thought was the same, it is slighly different though, i mixed it in with his usual pets at home nuggets and it got rejected. He threw each individual pellet out of the bowl into a pile, fussy little man. It did'nt pass the taste test. He has never had any problems with pets at hime nuggets though.

PMSL!! :lol::lol:

Mine used to have excell but suddenly decided that they didn't want it anymore (I seem to remember that excell started 'looking' different at the time:lol::? ) They have been on P@H Nuggs ever since and love them.... I have tried them on lots of different nuggets over time and they just won't eat them :roll:

I took advice from here and went with A&P, not only cos its high in fibre, but also its one of the cheapest at 8 for a 20kg bag. I really don't mind some going to waste (although it doesn't, it is being taken to Elaines!) it is still more cost effective than 3.50 for 2kg.

My boy used to be on the P@H nuggets and he loved them, I changed him over quite quickly to Excel and he loves those too ! :) I've had no problems with either.
