    Its pretty clear we're going to get either a hamster or guinea pig, most likely hamster.

    I never thought about hamster food before. When I was young, I'm pretty sure it was Hartz that sold a big orange box of what was called hamster food---a motley collection of seeds, and some other things that looked processed (standard-shaped cylinders) but that the hamsters seemed to like, regardless.

    Is there some brand, or some types of food, that are best for these rhodents?

    Prr, if you have a bulk barn near by, you can mix your own at less cost. It's quality food to boot.
    Life is tough, it's even tougher if your stupid.
    If your not angry, your not paying attention...

    Bulk Barn is a Canada chain. I'm south of the border--a few days' drive. :)

    I think it's crate and barrel there or something like that. 😃 I get all our bird feeder food there, 1/2 the price of the bag stuff even from Walmart.

    If you mix your own food...just make sure you buy the salt-free options...

    ...and double check...they've made mistakes on their labeling.

    I buy some parrot foods from the Bulk Food stores...
    55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
    25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed

    FWIW, we've gone with Purina, which has a line of rodent food. Our hamster likes it, and from all the feces in the cage, sure seems to eat a lot of it. Plus, its at a local target, so its easy to find.
