I agree that many of the stick foods are poor quality. If you read some of the labels, the ingredient lists can be appalling. One brand I tried once actually had feathers in it, I mail ordered it so I didn't know that until it got here.
What turtle eats feathers in the wild? Even the predators around my house pull the feathers out of their prey & leave a pile on the ground. lol
I also use the pellets as more of a treat, not a staple diet.
I've found over the years that once I started feeing more live food my yellow mud doesn't care much for any pellet food anymore, he'll take some now & then but he often turns his nose up at it.
Because we live sort of out in the country where the neighbors aren't too close and we can't treat the lawn with chemicals because of our grazing tortoise, I'm able to find a good variety of live insects outdoors aside from the ones I breed for him to eat.
I like that..
What species of muds/musks do you have?
