    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...

    What Are The Staple Leafy Greens For Your Piggies?

    Hi there! Now that winter is here, I wanted to check what fresh greens do you give your piggies on a (nearly) daily basis. I always try to buy local, organic produce. In the spring, summer and autumn, I usually give each piggy a butterhead lettuce leaf daily, accompanied by either a sprig of...

    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...

    Courgette Plant Leaves Leafs ?!

    Overweight Piggie - Diet Tips Needed!

    Morning all! I am new to this forum - but it has so far provided me with a lot of help with various questions, so I thought I would join up! My piggie, Daisy, has been given antibiotics by the vet a few days ago, and whilst I was there the vet said she needed to lose some weight. I have...

    Showing No Interest In Most Veggies...

    Hi there, A week ago my partner and I were lucky to bring home three little piggies - Daisy, Clover and Poppy - all of which are around the eleven week old mark. Yesterday we had to take them to the vet, as they've been sneezing and coughing (as well as scratching a lot) and he said all of...

    Veggie And Food Questions

    I have looked at lists for edible and non edible foods from happycavvy.com but there is a couple foods I'm worried about. Would it be ok to give them fruits like apples and tomatoes 3-4 times a week? (2 days of tomato, 2 days of apple) or is this too much? should I just do 1 day of tomato, 1 day...

    The Fight For The Last Piece Of Cucumber

    Beans' face when she realises all the food is gone and Toast has just pinched the last piece of cucumber... "I think that was mine, Toast.." "Excuse me, Toast, but Mum said you've to share with me." "Sorry Beans, I don't share food" I ended up having to give Beans another bit just to...

    Vitamin C

    With me seeing things about how much vitamin c pigs need (and that being lots) I was wondering which veggies/fruits are high in vitamin c? I know carrots are and obviously oranges, but the boys have carrots quite regularly and get bored, plus we tried a little orange peel the other night but...
