i tried my two girls with them - but they weren't keen.
It's not really recommended in more than very small quantities occasionally - they are one of the cabbage varieties that cause problems with bloat; most piggies won't like them anyway!
i'm not to keen on them.........or cabbage, as it can make them a bit gassy and i've had friends have bad experiences with them....... :...
that's just my personal point of view tho
you might like to look thru this list that Laura has compiled
lots of info on what foods and combo's they should eat but it's very informative
As long as you you feed these cabbage varieties in smaller quantities as part of a bowl of mixed veg, these cabbages are safe to feed to healthy guinea pigs regularly: broccoli, sweetheart/pointed cabbage, savoy, cauli, bok/pak choi. Occasionally: Spring greens and kale - like spinach, kale is very high in calcium and should only be fed about once a month.
If you have a piggy with a tender digestive system, cabbages are the first thing to go!
Here is a list of veg they can eat: http://www.theguineapigforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=42
Mine seem to like the outer leaves of sprouts but dont eat the actual sprout..............
My girls love sprouts. I like to buy them loose rather than in a bag as it saves on waste as my 2 don't get through a whole bag but apart from christmas time they don't sell them loose anywhere!
