    Hay/Grass

    The glorious weather we had through May meant my two 20 week old sows have had plenty of lawn time. They've gorged and gorged on grass and have been extremely content. Now the weather has turned a bit wet they've been confined to their large hutch with bundles and bundles of hay...all of which...

    Hay Rack?

    Hi all! I was here yesterday asking for help for mites on my poor piggie girl! So I'm wondering if it would be better for me to have a hay rack that they can eat from? They normally just have a hay and grass mix on the floor for them to play in as well as they love it haha. Now however I'm...

    Hello and advice please on new baby with the runs :-(

    Hi I wish my first thread on here was more cheery but could do with some advice please. We got new babies on Tuesday afternoon (approx 9 weeks), one is a lot more confident & seems to have taken to life with us quicker. So much so he’s been gobbling up food and to be honest I think I’ve...

    grass?

    Hi, I was just wondering if you can feed guinea pigs fresh grass as I've had an idea that i can buy a mini hay rack (like a hamster sized one) to put grass in but also have a big one for the hay during the winter so when its summer they can go on the grass and eat more of it? I don't want to...

    Scared outside

    Hi, I see so many people posting photos of their guineapigs outside and it looks like they’re having a great time. About 6 months ago I went to amazon and brought a run. I put in hay, houses water and toys and went to bring them outside (they are indoor pigs) and I left them outside the first...

    HAY HELP! Timothy or Alfalfa?

    Hi! I’m looking to get a couple of guinea pigs soon and have done a lot of reading! There’s so many different opinions on what the best type of hay is to give them. What do you guys do? I am moving soon and will have a small garden and no lawn so I’ve looked into getting grass trays and having...

    First lawn time of the year

    The piglets got out in the lawn for the first time this evening. They’ve had mountains of grass for as long as it’s been growing but the weather has never been good enough for me to put them out

    I'm Being Bullied For Grass...

    We had a late spring here in Ireland and most of the livestock (sheep/cattle) are only being let out to pasture in the past couple of weeks due to the poor grass growth. Thankfully, the grass is finally bursting into growth. Last week, I began picking fresh grass from the garden for the...

    How Much Grass?

    I know you shouldn’t let pigs eat too much grass at first. But how much is too much? For example, yesterday I gave them about a fistful altogether. Is that an ok amount to start them on? They wolfed it down fast but I didn’t want to give them more in case they got the runs...

    Grass Help!

    heya! My boyfriends mum picked a bucket of grass for our piggies and she got it from her friends farm. Can guinea pigs eat any type of grass? will the grass from the farm be okay for them to eat? Is anyone able to identify the type of grass this is? It is a little fuzzy on the stems too -...

    Do I Need De Wormer?

    Hey everyone! Here is a picture of my two piggies pigging- out on some fresh grass from outside. They get fresh grass everyday, and they are/ will be living inside their whole life. I cut the grass with scissors, so they don't get any dirt or roots. By the end of the week, I will be...

    Finally Have A Lawn!

    OH has deemed the back lawn (finally) suitable for pig habitation so out they went! It's still a bit sparse and I'm not allowed to put them out too often this summer to allow it to establish fully, but it made me very happy to see them out there! Can just make out Rey in the box and Chewie...

    Cooling Down On Some Grass

    I went out and got some grass for the piggies and then wet it a little so it will help them stay cool and hydrated. Plus they look adorable munching on it ;) Here's Oki nibbling away

    Orchard Grass Hay Question

    Since I got my guinea pigs I have been feeding them Timothy hay. I recently bought a very small bale of oxbow orchard grass for a change and it was very popular. I like the Orchard grass as apparantly so I read it has a lower calcium content then most hays and its much softer then timothy...

    Grass

    Hi, sorry for my poor English, I just want to ask if I feed my guinea pigs well. I noticed in one discussion forum (USA) that most owners feed their guinea pigs a lot differently than in the Czech Republic. In the US, they mainly eat salads and leafy vegetables, a little carrot only. Our...

    Can I Grow Grass?

    Is it possible to grow grass for piggies? What grass is best, and how? I think it would be a safer and a more reliable way than just picking it from outside. :D

    Grass And Worms

    Hi, i have a question :). Do guinea pigs who are being fed grass daily need to be dewormed? I'm not that familiar with worming or anything but I'm assuming that deworming is to help prevent worms? Or is it to help cure it? Anyway, as the weather is getting warmer I have been giving my guinea...
