Hi everyone,
I’m looking for a guinea pig treat that is healthy, to reward my piggies with and hand feed to gain their trust and tame them. Are pea flakes a good option? Are they healthy?
If not, any other suggestions?
Thanks a lot,
Alvie, pawrent of teenage Peruvian boys Billy and Pumpkin!

I give mine chunks of cucumber or pepper as hand fed treats.
Mine do get pea flakes but not many.
The feeding guides on the forum might answer your question

I occasionally hand feed mine pea flakes as a treat. They love them :) I buy them in small bags from eBay.

I wouldn’t say they were healthy but as both my pigs are on a very strict diet with what veg they get (they get no fruit) due to my girl once being diabetic, they don’t get many treats

pea flakes are healthy for piggies, they contain lysine which is good for piggies. mine get about 2 a day
