    Leeks?

    I don't see this on the chart. Where does this fall in terms of feeding? Is it high calcium? TIA

    No, you really shouldn't be feeding your guinea pigs leeks. Also, FYI, they contain 59mg of calcium per 100g of leeks.

    Quote from the website http://guineapigcare.com.au/piggy-pe...igs-eat-leeks/
    "They will definitely eat the leeks… however the answer is NO you shouldn’t feed your guinea pigs leeks. Leeks are a part of the garlic family and contain sulphides which in excess will cause problems for your piggies."

    Nothing that's related to an onion, and leeks definitely are.
