Do you keep your redfoots outdoors? If not when weather is 55 or higher I wouold suggest you do. You might consider giving them collard greens, turnip greens, sweet potatoes cantelope in addition to that cat food.

Personally I use the Mazuri like you do the catfood. I have known redfoot breeders that swear by the catfood but for me I'll opt to use the lower protein amt's that mazuri feed provides. You say you have been keeping yours since Feb, 2012 so you can't really have a good handle on what yesrs of feeding them your way will do. Based on the diet you said you were giving them they will have health problems. I have a large collection and been feeding my oldest pair for over 15 years. Before Mazuri was available I included X-breeder mice in their diet. I think if I were you I would definately consider a more well deversified diet for your redfoots. You will in the end have much healthier redfoots.
