I have trees producing grapefruit, tangerines, and kumquat and I would like to know if piggies can eat some and how much?
I don't use any sort of pesticides on the trees either. Also could I give them some branches from the trees to chew on?
I imagine I wouldn't want to give them too much citrus but would a tiny bit be okay as an occasional treat? Can they eat the skins, too?
 
Oh that's an interesting one. I've not tried grapefruit, I know they can eat apples and oranges, however, citrus fruits isn't something to be fed daily as the acid can hurt their mouths. So my advice is little and not so often.
I've read somewhere whereby piggies will eat the skins, but can't recall where.

Hope that's a bit of help.
I wouldn't mind having access to those kind of trees here but sadly our climate just doesn't allow it.
