Anyway, that's good to hear. I am running low again and had to order Oxbow, too. My last batch of KMS came from Amazon.com (they sent 5 lbs. and not 10 lb, but that might have been my fault), but they are sold out there, too.

The hay is $22.50 per 50 lb bale and the pellets are $8 for a 5 lb bag. My pigs eat pellets, but they don't eat much of them, so 2 bags can last them for the month. I should have known that moving to farm country would make getting supplies for my guinea pigs easier, cheaper and I would get better hay.
I am running low but i guess I'll wait till next week and ration.
Incase I do need to buy some, what is the next best place for that?
Do all the bags you have been receiving have labels that look like this? The date should be adjusted depending on when milled.
Here's an example of a pellet for swine and laboratories that might analyze it:
The above page gives an idea of how to interpret data and what sort of data might be included in an analysis. They do recommend resampling if values are outside of normal. However, I do think that given the very small amounts of pellets each guinea pig usually eats, uniform dispersal of ingredients is extremely important.

I'm getting really frustrated with KMS. They sent me an email a week or so ago that the pellets were being milled and would be available "soon," which was a huge relief. When I didn't see any other updates, I wrote back and asked if they knew when they would be ready to ship. One of their reps emailed me back to say that he or she could "put together an order for you and invoice you." I thought that was great, and wrote back immediately to say YES, please do that. Didn't hear back. Wrote to them twice last week for a status and ask if they are sending me an order (their website still shows timothy pellets are out of stock) but have not had any response. Again, I understand that circumstances can happen beyond their control, but why can't they respond to customer emails---or at least post an update on their site?
Meanwhile, I am almost completely out of KMS pellets, now, and have been mixing 50/50 with what I thought was Oxbow Garden Select---only to realize that I ordered the wrong thing and have been using the Organics formula for close to two weeks, which has calcium carbonate in it. So now I'm scrambling to get a bag of GS and hoping that I don't run into bladder issues with our guys because of this mistake.
