    Potato chips?

    I know they don't come across as too healthy but my piggies really like the smell.

    Has anyone fed their piggies chips? Should I let them cool down a bit? Never heard of serving hot food to guinea pigs.
    They are made of potatoes, which is a plant, afterall.

    NO! Do NOT feed potatoes! They can have sweet potatoe but none of the skin and in small amounts. They can not have any other potatoe exept for sweet ones.

    Clearly I should have read the poisonious part of the nutritions thread more carefully. Thanks.

    I'd say it's best to just not feed your pigs any "cooked" food. Or processed food for that matter. Aside from fresh veggies, hay, and pellets your pigs really shouldn't be eating anything else.
