    It's listed as a complementary feed as opposed to a complete feed, so I would guess it is given as a treat. Price doesn't seem too bad to me, when a 10KG bag of SS cost me about 19. Not sure what the point is of giving a complementary feed unless it has added vitamins etc, that are not in a complete food.

    High fibre + reasonable price = Allen and Page (in my own humble opinion only!!!!)

    Nice one! I have a 20 min drive to get mine so sometimes if I'm feeling lazy i will order online, if you don't need delivery it is such a bargain

    All rabbit feed should be described as complimentary as they need hay and/or grass as part of their diet.
    I didn't mean that like you didn't know they need hay, just saying why it's complimentary. Wasn't sure if it might come across wrong

    Dont you think the protein level on A&P is a bit low, at 12%? Fibre is good at 23%, less than SS Adult though. But then breeder and grower is 15.5% protein, so thats a bit high and is only 18% fibre which I think is lower than I'd like.

    My lot lost weight on A&P. Some do fine but it is something to keep an eye on.
