Hey all,

I am starting to make my guineas own pen and I wanted to know what kinda of plants and stuff I can add in it?

So far I have cat nip,sage, and mint.

How often are you planning on putting them outside? There are many plants that are ok as long as they get them in limited amounts. Be sure to
check the poisonous plant list!

These threads have good info:

I noticed that there are no sticky threads in the "outdoor environments" forum. has any written the "everything to do with outdoor pens" article?

A couple times a week unless it rains or I'm working. ^.^ But than I would have to do three different trips for three sets of guineas.

and Thankyou!

Grass is always good. They like to eat the grasses. My piggies love parsley (but it is a 2-3 times a week), They like basil and oregano, but they only get the leaves I don't know if the stems are okay for them (but I think they are). My piggies go gaga for cilantro! Please check the nutrition chart for all of these! I don't want to be telling you anything wrong!
