i only ask cus the day Holly went off her food i gave them an extra handful of pellets when i got home from work.. and it always seemed to be when i gave too many pellets that Alvin used to get stasis :?

im beginning to distrust pellets :? :? :?

Touch wood my boys are fine at the moment, but they did have a slight increase in pellets when it was freezing, and when it got warmer I forgot to do the reduction, and Clo went back to having a squatty botty for a couple of days - as soon as I realised what the problem might be I went back to the original amount and all is fine again :)

I found that my two had a lot more problems with stasis when they were on pellets. We went back to a tablespoon of Russell Rabbit per day (with a couple of mature rabbit pellets each) about 3 years ago and they have been a lot better.

Alfie is in stasis and he did munch more pellets than Sophie regardless of trying to stop him

No, ive been giving them less since they came indoors. But they have been in for over 2 months, so the fact that they now live inside wasnt a contributing factor.

Its interesting though.
