I'm new to mice and wonder if what I'm giving is okay, would be grateful for advice and to know if what I'm feeding is what's best for the girls please.
I feed science selective mice and because it isn't a grain but more like a biscuit I also have a bob martins, natures nibble grain and honey stick hanging in their cage. I've got bob martins egg biscuit bars too and have access to crickets and wax worms, although wax worms are fattening to reptiles and frogs, so I haven't given any to the girls ATM.
Do I still need to give them chicken for the occasional snack or will the crickets suffice? I currently kill the crickets and offer them with my fingers but should I just put three in the cage to let the girls catch them themselves? My main concern is that crickets can nip and I don't want the girls noses nipped at any point.
I just want to make sure I'm not giving too much 'junk' food and also don't want to compromise their health by giving too much of a good thing.
Thanks for any advice and do say if there is anything I'm doing wrong. :)
