    Feeding Fresh Fruit And Veg

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and have a question about feeding fresh fruit and vegetables. What is the right amount in a day, and can you overfeed a guinea pig?

    One Week Update

    It's been one week, and a day, since the three girls came home. We are renaming them but haven't got very far: Mango is now BB (BB-8 from StarWars) but we're awaiting inspiration for Chutney and Squirrel. BB and Squirrel are sisters and Chutney is a cousin (they think) They are settling in well...
