    Will these make piggies sick?

    I saw on another page that you can feed orange peel, but I was wondering if you could feed grape fruit peel? I bought "cat grass" seeds to grow for my cat and I was wondering if my guinea pig could also have it. It contains organic oat grass, rye grass, wheat grass, and barley grass. The package says that pet cats, pet rabbits, and pet birds can eat it. What do you think? Thank you in advance!

    There was a thread about cat grass awhile ago, although a quick search showed up nothing. Maybe I need to try writing in something else. I will see if I can find it. As far as I can remember, cat grass is fine although I am not sure about grape fruit peel.

    This is a quote from a sticky thread in the Diet and Nutrition section; http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/...r-forages.html

    Grass (common grasses are edible, avoid ornamental grasses), cat grass/wheat grass is also popular and can be grown in pots or containers.
    This is the thread I was talking about earlier http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/...own-grass.html

    Grapefruit peel may be a bit too tart and acidy for your pigs. You could try it but I wouldn't offer it more than once every couple of weeks and only a very small amount of peel per pig. Don't be surprised if they won't eat it.
