Mine have had mint & thyme (not lemon) and love it. Not sure about the others, have a look at the shopping list at the top :)

My piggie absolutely adores Parsley, he eats it like mad. I didn't realise they could have the leafy stuff too! He'll be over the moon :D

mine love dill and lemon grass. Not too keen on coriander though. I've noticed that the mint leaves from tesco don't last very long.

WOW Duke would freak, he's a parsley man...turns his nose up at all other herbs SIGH....

I think anything would be OK, but in moderation, Duke does get his parsley (not the curly one) every day.

Try a variety, but remember good old hay and pellets are the best.

I went to ASDA last night and they do grow your own plants, 2 for £1 so I got Parsley, Coriander, Mint and Dill.
Sid LOVES it he cant get enough :) He eats it from the stem and eats it so fast he looks like hes sucking it in like a straw ;D then gobbles the leaves at the end :)

Try them on basil, mine adore it. I have two plants and take the side leaves off alternate plants. They alternate with coriander, parsley, dill and mint! And seem to like all the herbs they have had up to now!

Mine love's parsley and occasionaly chives. Why don't you buy packets of seeds and grow your own in a large litter tray.

Mogwei goes absolutely mad for parsley, wombell can leave it or take it, but if its not in the food boll we get shouted at and he stands at the kitchen door shouting until he gets it. However he never actually ventures in to the kitchen.

Never thought about other herbs, will have to give them a try! :)

Thats another good thing I've learnt from this website :D I don't know why, but I had never even thought of giving the pigs herbs to eat. I grow my own corriander, parsley, basil and chives. Can I give them the others too (I'm assuming not chives because they are a bit oniony)?

Ooops, I've just reread the other replies and realised that some people do give chives. The only thing I haven't seen mentioned is basil (I sort of hope they can't have it becasue its my favourite ;) ). If anyone is thinking of growing their own, I'd say that corriander is the easiest. It grows absolutely anywhere and fast too.
