    Fresh Food: Re: Veggies once or twice daily?

    Pellets: Re: Only junk food in Greece for guinea pigs!

    Neither of those pellets are very good. They don't contain hay which should be the primary ingredient in a pellet. Looking at the ingredients lists, the first one seems a little better than the...

    Pellets are the least part of the diet. The main part of the diet consists of hay, then forages, veggies and lastly, pellets. Mazuri is ok but it's not the best brand out there.

    Supplements: Re: Vitamin C Suggestions Please

    Just to clarify for everyone, the amount in grams on my nutrition charts are not portion sizes. They are merely a reference point to say how much of X is in that many grams of the food.

    Pellets: Re: Only junk food in Greece for guinea pigs!

    Grass hay needs to be fed from day one. You don't start with alfalfa hay and switch. Alfalfa hay is only a supplement in addition to grass hay. With pellets you can start with either a...
  11. How Much?: Re: Should there be a constant supply of food besides hay?

    Diet: Re: Dandelion Greens

    They are ok for a couple times a week treat in small amounts as they are high in calcium. The flowers, stem and leaves can all be eaten.

    Forages: Re: Question about corn husks and silks

    They always need fresh foods. Never dried or frozen. I have kept husks and silks in the fridge for a week or so. If the husks feel too dry, I would wet them a little before feeding. They are a...
  16. How Much?: Re: Should there be a constant supply of food besides hay?

    How old is she? Pigs under 6 months can have unlimited pellets but over 6 months should be limited. Hay is the primary diet, followed by a well rounded veggie list and pellets are the least of the...
