Can mice eat chick feed?

Post by Mice Are Cute on Thu 28 Sep 2017, 6:32 pm

I didn't think of the safety, and I gave both Biggy and Grayson a small crumb of chick feed crumble. They loved it! I am now wondering if it's safe for an occasional treat, because I've never bouget them treats, and I am a supporter of natural ingredients for treats, so I thought that the feed could make a good treat. Any thoughts?

You would need to know what was in it to know if it was safe... What are the ingredients?

I 'strongly' advise against it. Mice are not supposed to have food meant for other critters. I get wild mice may eat anything, but keep in mind,
your mice are NOT wild. I think giving mice foods meant for other critters can give them the runs, as I'd given my first mouse, Daniel (my avatar picture), a piece of hamster food one time...and I'm thinking it gave him the runs.. But then again, every once in a while, my mice will do an occasional runny poop, so, don't know for sure.
But a different one of my mice would help herself to my ferret's food, and my ferret has a high quality food with a high-protein percent (and I think chicken, especially chick, feed has an even higher percentage), and I think that killed her. She was a bit abnormal-looking, but then again, no one person looks alike, either; and she was super active, and one day I got home and later on, I looked in her cage, and she was lying there, dead. It was a big shocker for me, especially since I'd just recently lost Daniel (aka Danny) from a terrible circumstance.
Anyways, I don't think one piece will kill--or even hurt--your mice, but I don't advise you giving them anymore of that stuff. Maybe stick to fruits/greens/dry grain-like stuff? =)

Hi Blessed, I used to have a ferret years ago. His name was Otis. He was such an awesome boy and all these years later I still miss him. He was perfect. Love

Hi. =) Aw, I'm really sorry.

My ferret is a total sweetheart. My mom's...not so much (in my opinion). Smile

Can you share some photos of your ferret so I can see her?
I had my ferret, Otis, back when I was in my 20's and now I'm 52 and I still keep a photo of him in my living room. Love

Certainly! Your Otis is beautiful, and so, so adorable! My mom would absolutely love him, as that's her favorite color on ferrets. I like males since they're bigger, but my mom said a flat-out no to a male, as she thinks they stink more. But I'm not certain on that. What do you think?
I also think it depends on the food, and how often or not you give them a bath (four times a year I think is sufficient), but both the ferrets have a high-quality food, and yet my ferret has a WAY stronger smell than my mom's ferret. My mom's fuzzy doesn't even smell too bad, but Grace, my ferret, at times has a highly offensive smell resembling a skunk, lol. =P But I love her anyways (just not her smell). And I'll make a different thread titled 'Ferrets' to share a picture, as I don't want to get off-topic here from Mice Are Cute's original post, lol.
