How do you know if they getting to much or not enuff calcium ? X
 
Too much calcium is excreted in the pee; that is the milky pees and white powdery deposits on the fleece. this a very normal procedure and nothing to worry about.

Our food recommendations try to find a sensible balance between too much and too little calcium in healthy guinea pigs without bladder issues. Calcium rich veg and herbs are usually also rich in vitamin C, magnesium and other trace elements, so cutting out any calcium is not to be recommended unless there is a good reason for it. If you are living in a hard water area, filtering your water can go a long way towards avoiding bladder problems, as can cutting down on pellets.
