Hi all so I'm looking to get a male mouse in a few months time and would like to see if the diet I want to make with that's available to me in the UK will be suitable or not.
Yes I have looked into pet shop foods but they are all so high in protein (19% or more)

So this is my idea for my own mix:
500g trill bird seed
125g naturals fruit salad
50g rolled oats
50g linseeds
50g split peas
50g brown rice

Do you know the GA of this mix by any chance? The number of whole ingredients?

If you happen to go with this, I would absolutely not use it alone--homemade mixes, especially those without dried vegetables/herbs, are rarely perfect in terms of micronutrients. I wouldn't make any less than 50% of the mix a high-quality rat/mouse pellet like Oxbow Adult Rat or Science Selective Rat pellets.

Mice: Raven
Other: Hermes (robo hamster), Prism (betta), Max (dog--profile pic)
Rainbow Kids: Pepper, Nugget, Dove, Artemis (hamsters), Leaf, Oak, and Moo (mice)
