    My guinea pig just grabbed a piece of orange peel and was eating it like mad. Is this ok? I know Vit C is good for them as they lack it but is the peel ok?

    Thanks for that, I have just found out on another site that you can give them peel. He just grabbed it out of my hand and was eating it like mad. I better see if my other little piggy wants some now.
