Higgins Sunburst Gourmet Blend for Hamsters & Gerbils is a seed mix.  Although it is not organic, it is all natural, naturally preserved, and free of any artificial dyes or flavorings. It also has great variety consisting of oats, wheats & grains making up the largest parts followed by seeds, veggies and fruit.   Personally, I pull the raisins out as non of my gerbils will eat them but they do love this food.  So far, this is the best food I have found in the US for my gerbils.

Feeding Guidelines:

While introducing a new food to your hamster/gerbil, gradually mix Sunburst® with your pet’s old diet. Increase the amount of Sunburst® over a period of 7 to 10 days. This will allow your pet to adjust to the new food and it will prevent any upset to your pet’s digestive system. Feed your hamster/gerbil 2 to 3 tbsp of Sunburst® per day depending on the age of your pet. Younger animals will eat more. Always regulate the food portion to maintain your pet’s weight. Remove and discard uneaten food everyday and clean the bowl prior to refilling it. Always maintain fresh drinking water near your pet’s food container.
