Do you mind sharing pictures of what you feed your piggies daily, even if you have them in chart? :luv: Down below is what I've planned out, please let me know if I need to modify or if you have any suggestions please. :)

side note: it says Glacier's Daily Meal but need to switch it to Glacier & Koji both are boars (4 months) :hug:

I wouldn’t give spinach and parsley in the same week. And I wouldn’t give parsley that often. And I’d stick to one type of lettuce per day.

mine get celery, cucumber, coriander sprig (more if I don’t have much of the other veg to hand), green bean, lettuce in the morning and pepper. I don’t always have everything to hand, but I endeavour to at least have pepper and cucumber around. I’ll also occasionally give them a little bit of cabbage, carrot shavings/carrot tops, piece of fruit (usually blueberries or a little apple) - when I remember Or if the kids ask.

Pellets should be limited to one tablespoon per pig per day, not access 24/7. They’re the junk food of the piggie world.

Guinea pig meal.jpg

This is a meal for one guinea pig. Capsicum, carrot, cucumber, lettuce, baby cabbage leaf (spring greens) and basil. I also gave lots of grass and lots of hay and no pellets.
Capsicum, carrot & cucumber are normally my staples and I swap the leafy veg around a lot, although lettuce and spring greens will be in their diet a couple of times a week at least.

Thank you! What lettuce is the best out of those?

And my vet told me if they're under 6 months old they should have access to it 24/7. They have Oxbow Young Guinea Pig pellets. :o

Any lettuce can be fed but NOT iceberg

They don’t need access to pellets constantly at that age. I would move to limit them and get them focused on mostly a hay based diet.
When it comes to young guinea pig pellets for piggies are up to four months of age, they should only have one tablespoon of young guinea pig pellets. They can have two tablespoon of adult pellets up to four months of age. And then once they are four months old drop down to one tablespoon per day of adult pellets. They don’t need special baby pellets in reality
