So, before I continue. I will say that my Gliders have a staple I make for them, and they gey fresh fruits, veggies, and sometimes meat stuffs every single night.

So I understand the pellets are not a necessity. I just like to have dry pellets in the cage with them so if they want a snack during the day - it's there.

However, the only brand I'm finding in petstores is this Vitakraft - Vitasmart Complete Nutrition.

I've been using it for awhile, and it does what it needs to for the most part. Gliders will occasionally pick at it if they're feeling finicky.

However, I've heard rumors among other Glider parents that this stuff is garbage?
I read the back of it and I'll admit I'm skeptical. I'm curious to see this community's thoughts on such a product.
Yay or nay?
Should I keep this, or shall I look for another form of pellet as a "snacky" item in cage?

Ive used this with my gliders, my first one never touched it, but my two boys will eat it during the day. Thought I have to say im Curious myself about whether or not this is the best option, but most places Ive checked, exotics and all, sell the same thing.

I'd recommend Happy Glider pellets as a daytime pellet not to replace their evening staple and fruit/veggies for a daytime food in case they wake up and are hungry. They are sold by Pet-Pro. Mine won't touch the Chicken Breeder ones at all but are fans of the Fruity Flavor, Global, and Honey Nectar(this one you have to call them and order).

I used happy glider also, order online.
I wouldn't use vitakraft unless I could find someone I trusted to back
it up as a good pellet.

Happy glider looks more like a cereal, looks and feels much softer then the
vitakraft pellet. It is recommended by several websites and companies and by a few long time owners on websites.

I tried Vitakraft as well as thats all the pet store had when I purchased my glider he barely ate any of it. Switched to happy glider as thats what the breeder was feeding him and he eats it with no issues. I also leave fresh fruits,vegetables and occasionally meats in there nightly.
 Look what I found on Ebay
