    Has anyone tried their piggies on parsnips at all?

    I picked up some from Aldi today as they were part of the super 6 so a bag for 39p as I knew my mum would eat them even if the piggies didn't (I don't like them).

    Thinking of giving the pigs a christmas dinner of brussels, parsnips, carrot and coriander hehe

    Mine like them very occasionally. They seem to like the thin end bits best :) I assume that, actually, Lord Bernie himself eats them all - he will eat anything :))

    I wish Bertie would eat parsnips! When I got him from a pet shop as a baby he would only eat dry food. After a few days I realised I had to take his dry food out and make sure he had no hay to get him to eat any veggies. He will nibble carrots, if I peel them, celery, cucumber (favourite but only gets a tiny bit)apple cores, cabbage..the nice centre bit! Of course he loves grazing on the lawn! He is so naughty!x)

    Parsnip is the only food in the world I've found that my pigs just won't touch.

    Treacle loves parsnips, she has a real sweet tooth. Cookie will eat them if nothing better is on offer, Putt(RIP) would just give us a dirty look if we tried to give them to her.

    Let us now how you get on with them.
