Hi. Just bought some Round Lettuce. is it ok for piggies plsView attachment 113277
It is OK to feed, but it is not the most nutritious.

You can even feed iceberg lettuce in a pinch if the supermarket shelf or your fridge is otherwise empty; it just has very little nutrional value and comes with some things that are not good when fed regularly. ;)

Mine like round lettuce Dave they like curly leaf lettuce even more. Little Gem is their favourite and they absolutely LOVE chicory.

Mine like romaine and little gem, the asda ones usually stay fresh for a week so its usually coriander on saturday and sunday when we've just been shopping, spinach mix or babyleaf salad monday and tuesday, then romaine or little gem later in the week once the good stuff has run out! Never tried round lettuce with them, good to know its ok though if asda doesnt have much else in!

I think this lettuce is also called “butterhead” lettuce, it’s often in mixed lettuce seed varieties. We have one in our veg plot at the moment along with red and green frizzy lettuces and oak leaves lettuce
