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.

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?

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.
