    :))Made the fruit/veg readigrass balls yesterday with the kids. Was a fun and easy activity and the pigs seem to appreciate their efforts

    My balls went mouldy:eek: !

    Less than a week in the airtight cintainer and a white fibrous mould appeared. Must have been from the apple.

    My piggies love this they even fight over it.

    Materials
    1- a knife
    2- a string
    3- your piggies favorite veggies

    Instructions
    1-cut up the veggies( I used celery,carrots,apples, and radish)
    2-use the knife to make a hole in the veggies
    3-string the veggies on to the string
    4-tie it to the cage and watch your piggies enjoy

    Sorry for the bad picture

    Love these recipes! I will definitely be making some. When its a hot day, I chop up my piggies favourite fresh veggies and put them in ice cube trays with some water. Leave them overnight in the freezer and then give them to the pigs! Its like an ice lolly for them :))

    Cookie is giving her piggie veg in a ice block, I didn't think you should do that. If it's a no no can you tell, her why.

    Se connecter à Facebook | Facebook - this is a rabbit group on Facebook who makes healthy treats and I think the proceeds go to her rescue. I haven't bought any yet but my friend bought some for her rabbits and is eagerly awaiting their delivery! They do look good, you would have to join the group before seeing the different flavours, but there are loads and loads.

    As far as I'm aware piggies can be fed oats, although I think they can be quite fattening so only in small amounts/in moderation. I've seen people suggest them as winter addition to their diet to keep weight on some piggies.

    I agree with above :) when we adopted one of our boys he came from the animal rescue that didn't have much money and he was rather underweight for his age. We fed him oats alongside normal veggie and bag diet to speed the process up as he was very very small. X

    I know this isn't really a treat but this is how I make hay tunnels:

    You need:
    A roll of toilet paper, paper towels, or maybe tissues.
    Some smaller bits of hay
    Glass jar
    Optional:
    Some bright colored veggie or fruit such as spinach, (makes a greenish yellow), or blueberries, (makes purple). I bet strawberries would give a gorgeous red or pink!
    Ground pellet dust
    A few oats

    How to make:
    Wet the toilet paper and stick it around the jar until it's the size, shape, and thickness you want it. Unless you have a larger jar probably you don't want your guinea pig to actually be able to get into it, in the chance he or she might get stuck. (Help) :no: Pour dye onto it probably using a spoon, doesn't really matter what it looks like, the hay pretty much covers everything leaving only small traces of color. This part isn't really needed doesn't make much difference either way but I personally enjoy trying to make the veggie dye. On a paper plate put the hay, oats, and crushed pellets. (Or anything you could think of really that would dry well. ;)) You can leave it on your countertop overnight or so but I was worried about it molding before it dried properly, so mine was put in the oven at 200 degrees. It took a long time to dry, but worked very well.

    Veggie or Fruit Dye:
    I've only used spinach and blueberries before but I'm sure that pretty much any veggie with a more vibrant color could be used. I boiled it on high until the water changed color. You can boil it as long as you want to get a stronger color, but don't be like me and let of the water evaporate out in the meantime! :soz:

    Hope you have as much fun as I did making this and hope your piggies like to too! :tu:
