  1. Cubes available for small donation to rescue - Sheffield

    Our guinea pigs have both passed over the rainbow bridge and, as it can be hard to get hold of cubes here, I am offering ours to anyone who might be looking for them. They are too heavy to post so...

    Vegetables: Florence Fennel?

    I know it's OK to feed fennel leaves once a week. Is it OK to feed the "bulb" (it isn't actually a bulb, it's a swollen stem) of the Florence Fennel variety? I've searched for fennel on the forum...

    Forages: Re: Redi-grass ultra grass etc.

    I have always assumed that haylage isn't suitable for guinea pigs as it's partially fermented. I know that horse quality hay is fine but haylage is different. (I've searched and found an old thread...

    You can get cubes from Screwfix. A 4 cube set should contain enough panels for a 4x2 cage (assuming you don't need a lid or a base). The cost is 24.46 including VAT plus 5 delivery charge. ...

    General: Re: 'JarBax Jottings' - in words and pigtures!

    I'm so sorry about Mary (and Emm and Mellow as I've not spent so much time on the forum and missed those threads). It's great that you can still visit Marble.

    Forages: Re: Grass/Yard Questions

    You shouldn't use grass clippings from the mower - mowers bash and bruise the grass and cut it short so that it decomposes on the lawn quickly (as you're not using a grass box). That means that the...

    Forages: Re: Fresh grass and dandelions?

    Dandelion flowers are fine (big treat for my pigs). You should wash the grass before you give it to them (but you can can give it to them still wet - you don't need to dry it). They can have the...

    Re: UK Veggie Variety

    Collards are pretty much the same as spring greens - in the UK at least. They are a loose (non-heading) cabbage but, as they are brassicas, you can't feed them every day. The "greens" in the three...

    Grow Your Own: Re: Home grown lettuce

    It sounds like the tall flower stem of a lettuce that's bolting. That bit tastes quite bitter to a human (well, it doesn to me).
