My pair get two tablespoons of pellets each, every day. One in the morning, one in the evening. I feed greens around lunch time. I’m with bam that I feed pellets just to insure I’m not missing any vital nutrients in their diet. In addition to that, Luna doesn’t maintain weight particularly well without that little bit of pellets in her diet.

The main reason I feed twice a day is because pellets swell once they get wet, so they’re going to swell in the gut a little. So due to that I like to split the feeding so that they don’t get too much in their stomach at once. I noticed that before I split Bandit’s feeding of pellets, that he used to just lay around afterwards like he’d eaten to much, then when I split his feedings that went away and he remained more active after.

That’s given me some food for thought – perhaps I’ll split my pellets into two feedings!
