It is a generically average pet rat food. For breeding feeders I would feed higher %s with more palatability.
For mice it is just plain too low protein and fat and you will end up supplementing. Personally if I have to supplement I don't bother and just feed what I am supplementing with...namely dog and cat kibble.

This is a personal opinion...but I do think you will find after a month or so on this soley that your beasts will be cannabalizing young.
