I'm really freaking out! :{ I've given my piggies leeks and they have been really enjoying them but I just read online that I shouldn't feed leeks! They've eaten loads! 8... Is it bad for them? What do I do?! :0

Nothing - one serving of leeks is not going to kill them! So stop panicking.
Any members of the garlic family are no good as part of a regular diet as they contain sulphides, but they are not acutely poisonous.

To the best of my knowledge, the green parts of leeks are absolutely fine.
