Ok, so, I was feeding my Guineas some of the old Shreddies and Shredded Wheat my parents bought over for them last night and it occured to me that I wasn't sure if they were ok for piggies.

I mean I am aware they have sugars in them, but I am sure they are very low, and the majority of E numbers are actually natural substances anyway. I was hoping the fibre would be good for their digestion.

They only get these once every fortnight.

Do you reckon they are ok?

I gave mine the big shredded wheat bars that are 100% wheat and they loved them, only gave them once every couple of wheeks.
I think shreddys are ok as long as there not the honey and nut ones

Be wary of the salt content! While the occasional shreddie won't hurt, they should not be part of a regualr diet.

You know, I didn't even think about that.

Thanks a bunch Wiebke! So, would you say once fortnightly it acceptable?

To be honest, they only eat a very small amount, then get bored and start eating their pellets.
