I just thought I'd offer a little review on these pellets.  After Zeus decided he didn't like Oxbow anymore, I tried these.  He loves them, and they are quite good nutritionally:

They are within all the guidelines that BB gives, and particularly they are quite low in Calcium which I think would be good for buns with sludge problems.  Kaytee seems to be more readily available in my area, and is less expensive than Oxbow.  So while it's not a replacement, I do think it is a good alternative to Oxbow.

For what it's worth!  Zeus eats them, so I'm happy.

I've also purchased those pellets before as well, with no problem. I agree that it's a good alternative to Oxbow, and more readily accessible for many people since the brand is pretty commonly available. Some of Kaytee's "rabbit pellets" are formulations that I would never feed my bunnies, but this one seems to be decent.

That's what I'm feeding my bun right now. I'm hoping to switch her to the Oxbow since I can get it off of BB. I had started Skipper on these pellets because at first that was all I was able to get my hands on. They seem to be okay for her. She goes crazy for them so hey. =p (She's tried jumping into the pellet container and knocking it over. xD) Do you feed Zeus the orange pieces regularly?

Zeus gets the orange pieces more as a treat.  One or two per day.  He loves them.

Yeah unforuntately most of Kaytee's formulations for rabbits are not very good, as far as I know the Kaytee Timothy Complete and the Kaytee Fort-Diet Pro-Health are the only two.
