Great food for young rats!
Oxbow is well known and loved in the "rat world".
Drs. Foster and Smith shipped the food out immediately.
Came to me in great condition.
And was WAY cheaper than any in store prices.
My rats love it, and its great for them.

Recommended by Rat Sites; the Rats Like It.
Read good reviews of this on Internet rat care sites. It's not as expensive as some other well-reviewed foods, and the rats like it.

In my experience, rats don't like blocks
When a food has been formulated for a certain age group, you expect it to be formulated to be appetizing to said age group. I have not found this to be the case. I recently adopted an active little 5 wk old rat and he didn't like the blocks at all; neither did the older rat. They both eat Oxbow Adult rat food so I was surprised when they didn't eat the blocks. They do with them what my other rats did with Kaytee blocks; they take them out of the bowl and hide them. Sometimes they've been gnawed on but mostly they are stashed away for a rainy day (or like kids do with broccoli and under the table). I keep putting them in there with the Oxbow Adult food and hope that after time, some will get eaten. It just seems that rats, especially ones who are given fresh yummy treats regularly, want nothing to do with block foods.
