    Daily veggies?

    I’m just curious as to what everybody feeds their guineas. A lot of places have varying information. I have taken a look at the forum though and am trying to give my guinea pigs more variety in their diet. Right now for their everyday veggies, they get a leaf of red/green leaf lettuce, a slice...

    How much calcium/vitamin c?

    Hi! I’ve been doing research on my veggies lately and I can not find the right amount of vitamins c/ calcium that guinea pigs are supposed to have daily. One article said that for an adult guinea, they need 25 mg and then another said they need 100mg a day. Does anybody actually know the right...

    Growing Vegas for the pigs

    I started growing some veg this year for my piggies (I have 20 so they go through ALOT of veg every day). This is my first year and so far have had a bit of success with lettuce, kale and cabbage. I’ve got tomatoes, carrots, runner beans, cucumbers, and peppers will waiting to grow and flower...

    Is this the right amount of veggies per pig? Also, do pregnant guineas need extra?

    sooo I made a post in another category because it was about housing and someone pointed out that I was feeding them the wrong amount of veggies (there was loads of kale and spinach- too much calcium) so I read the link and changed up their daily veggies a bit. Is this right? I have each pig: 2...

    Veggies to eat daily

    Hi wondered if someone could help me, I’m creating a list of what my piggies can eat during the week and writing out when they rotate and change etc, and I wanted to know what leafy greens that can be given? I was thinking romaine was okay to give a few times a week but then I saw this on a...

    Guinea pig poop smells really bad

    Hi, I have 2 guinea pigs. 1 is 2 years old and the other 24 weeks old. They have shared a 3 x 5 cage now for months. I had the 2 year old first and never had a problem with a smelly room or poop. Only when I got another guinea pig the smell has got really bad. That bad you can smell it as soon...

    Good starter veggies!

    Hi! I have two boars (Patches and Carmal). They recently went to the vet where they got prescribed some medicine for their soft stool. The medicine is to be administered twice daily for ten days. They do not like it but will behave long enough for me to syringe feed it to them. I did the first...

    Picky Eater! Help!

    Hi. I have two boars. Patches (older) and Carmal (younger). Carmal is good about eating his veggies, but his favorite is green beans. Patches on the other, is a very picky eater. He will only eat green beans, and, if I’m lucky, corn. This is probably partially my fault. This is my first time...

    Can I Feed Them The Same Vegtables Each Week?

    I give my girls a salad twice a day. I meal plan for the week so the foods that is only safe to for them to eat twice a week, I only give twice a week etc. They get 5-6 different veggies each day with a good variety/variation day to day, so it's never the same each day. Can I just use this same...

    Leaving Veggies Overnight.

    Hi again, guys. Some of you will remember me, since I've made such a bad first impression of myself as an owner LoL. (I'm that guy who let the dog chase after his guinea pig for the first week) But I'm way over past that, and I've made soooo many improvements. Porca is so much better, less shy...

    How To Introduce Veggies

    Hi guys! I wasn't sure where to post this, but I just got my piggies about 5 days ago & I'm worried about their eating habits. I got them from a shelter, so I didn't get much information on what foods they had been eating. I know piggies need 80% hay, some veggies, and maybe some pellets. I just...
