hi please can you tell me what your routine is morning/evening?
We are new to this. I have to get both children ready for school in the morning and so far have changed food and water and given fresh veg then in the evening topped up the hay in their sleeping area and again checked food and given a little veg. Although it doesn't look like they have eaten much dry food am I giving them too much veg?
Thank you

Your routine sounds fine.
I think the most important thing is that you are checking in on them twice a day to ensure they have adequate bedding and their water bottles aren't frozen over.

As far as diet goes I find this thread really helpful;

Recommendations For A Balanced General Guinea Pig Diet

I love the photos of appropriate amounts (but maybe I am just a slow learner!).
I found it took my lot a while to build up to a full appetite to be honest.
I think if your piggies are new and just settling in then it might take a week or so until they really feel comfortable and show their true colors.
