Have you tried any feed stores?

We don't have a feed store at our city.

either way, i'll have to use up the seeds food that i bought for them first. they're making such a mess with them tho.

They still may with the lab block. When I used it mine would just make bedding out of it more than eating it. :shrug01:

I'm sure that no matter where you live, there's someplace close to you where you can go pick up a sack or two at a time of lab block. Try the main pages of the manufacturers (Mazuri, Ziegler, Purina, etc.), and look at their dealer locators. Or grab the nearest yellow pages and start calling and asking. I had a heck of a time finding someone I could get it through since we live in such a rural state, but it beats paying outrageous shipping fees on it to have it delivered. You can also buy it in smaller bags at some of the retail chain pet stores, but the price is stupid high per pound on it.

You can check out reptile shows, as well. In our area, we have a distributor that goes to the local/semi-local shows, and that saves me a trip.
If you don't have anyone selling feed at the shows, ask some of the dealers at the show.
Good luck!

A feedstore (Make a monthly trip and buy 5 bags (Or how many you need) for the month or 2 months or whatever... Point is, stock up! I buy 5 at a time and that gets me by a month or so... I'm lazy so the less trips the better, damn store is only 5 minutes away lol
