Default Re: Help! Both hams sneezing?

They won't take any harm from always having access to food, hams in general don't tend to over eat but if you think they might be just picking their favourite bits out it means they aren't getting the nutritional balance they need so it can be better to leave it until they've finished what they have before you give them more. I've only had syrians so I don't know for Cujo but I think a tablespoon of food is the general recommendation? I give about that of Museli plus some science selective biscuits but Cc generally doesn't store food so it's easy to see how much she's eaten. There's no point giving them way more food than they're going to eat.

If you look at the nutrition levels you can judge how much they should be getting of each, it should add up to about 16-18% protein and I think 5-7% fat, can't remember about fibre so you can weigh out proportions of each mix.
