This has just come up elsewhere and I wanted to see what others do!

Do you feed your piggies veg from the fridge? Or do you let it come to room temperature?

In 12 years it has never occured to me to bring veg to room temperature, and my piggies have never had a problem. Just interested!?

I'm new to looking after guinea pigs... But I didn't even know there's a difference. I have the veg from the fridge.

interesting, I never thought about it either, I keep my veggies in the fridge as well before I give it to them.

I take the veg out of the fridge before I do my own breakfast. Then it has a bit of time to warm up while I have my breakfast.

I have always taken it out the fridge when needed. Leaving at room temp for a while could make the greens wilt!

I usually give it from the fridge and have done for the 4 years Ive had my piggies. I recently read something similar and if I have time I take it out a bit before but it doesn't always work out as the girls are up begging at me to give it to them now! Haha

I sometimes do and sometimes don't! Though I treat them just te same as me, if I'll eat it then its good enough for them but if I won't (eg- been in the floor, got crumbed off bread board or something) then I don't give it to them. Hasn't don't my piggies any harm either way

I remember reading on this forum a long time ago that veg should be at room temperature - I remember reading that cold veg could upset their tummies. Since reading that thread , I've tried to take their veg out of the fridge for a while before preparing their meal - but it is difficult. I'm usually late for work !

I feed mine straight from the fridge, I don't think I could handle the screaming for food whilst it warmed up! :))
