I feed sage, basil, parsley, marjoram, cilantro, lemon balm, and very little rosemary.

Mine will eat parsley, a little sage, coriander, occasionally mint and nibble at others in the garden such as rocket, oregano and thyme. Grew apple mint for them but they don’t like it! Dont care for basil either! I don’t think it matters which types of each herbs either - just seems to be down to personal Piggy taste!

So then ALL mints are ok then? Spearmint? Peppermint? Chocolate mint? Etc?
As well as....Sweet basil? Italian basil? Etc?

I'm jus curious because I have different species of one plant.

Not seen anything to say a certain flavour of mint isn’t suitable same with basil. Just whichever yours like. As I said previously I grew Apple mint for mine and they don’t like it but my friends rabbits love it!
