My piggies love radishes, they'll scrabble around to grab the biggest :)).

I'm not too sure, I get them as a treat when they're on offer. They don't get them every day. ;)

|f they are on a low calcium diet I would only feed radish infrequently as a treat - they are high in oxalic acid - which is implicated in urinary problems as it combines with calcium to form calcium oxalate stones.

My girls wont eat radishes at all, its the only thing they wont eat. They adore little gem lettuce though, and get it for a treat now and then.
