Read it over and let us know what specific questions you may have.
Like, for example, are either of these good? Which is better than the other and why?
Typical Ingredient Blend:* Lucerne Chaff, Oats, Wheat, Barley, Peas, Maize, Sunflower, Oaten Chaff, Lupins, Canola Meal, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Vitamin & Mineral Premix * May include one or more of the following due to seasonal variation & availability of raw ingredients.
And the second one (peckish? food?)
Selected from: Wheat, Peas, Bentonite, Barley, Oats, Maize, Sunflower, Lucerne Chaff, Oaten Chaff, Lupins, Canola Meal, Lucerne Meal, Salt, Di-Calcium Phosphate and Vitamin C.
Looks like they throw together a bunch of things and hope they are all eaten. The lucerne indicates higher calcium content. If the sunflower is not unhulled, it can be a choking hazard. I can't say I am impressed with either one of these. The peas are added to increase protein. These products look overall more like a chicken feed than a guinea pig/rabbit feed.

The second ones have wheat as their primary ingredient.
You want a timothy hay pellet with no colored bits, nuts or seeds added, and ideally, you want a calcium content of around .4%.
There's at least one Aussie on here who may see your question and be able to suggest pellets. And you could ask the same question over at Guinea Pig Cages -- there are at least two over there.
