  2. Yes on a temporary basis. Get some of the usual feed when you are able and mix a little of this rabbit chow with their regular food till it is gone.

    Call the manager and explain the situation. You can feed them anything, but if you need food, you need the correct feed- I hate when stores do this, I have had to read and watch our local feed store.:thun Sorry for the rant. Good luck .

    I feed Purina Layena pellets and will buy a 10# bag of Manna Pro 16% rabbit feed at Wal Mart to mix in with the 50# bag of Layena. I do it for the alfalfa in the rabbit feed. Works for me! [​IMG]

    Ditto - it won't kill them for a couple of days.
