I am most definitely not a nutrition expert, but I just recently read that having a higher protein food in your mix is fine as long as there's a lower protein food to balance it out. I guess the general consensus is that you can kind of average them out? So, 28+36+38+32=134, 134/4=33.5. Which means the average protein content of your mix (assuming you offer 25% of each food, like 20 BLUE, 20 Wellness, 20 BB chicken and 20 BB spa select) is 33.5%, which is fine. But, that's just what I've read and the rule that I personally follow :)

Yeah, honestly, we had been saying high protein is bad without actually having anything to back it up. High protein is NOT going to kill your hedgie, and especially in a mix it all evens out. It's only when a hedgie has existing renal issues that high protein aggravates the issue.

Doesn't matter to me what it's mixed with I just don't like it, it's just my opinion not the holy book lol. :) If a hedgehog skips around the other foods the % is not that easy to figure out, imo.
