    Can Guinea pigs eat theese types of lettuce?

    I currently feed romaine. I was wondering can they eat curly lettuce, round lettuce & little gem lettuce?


    Many thanksxx

    Romaine lettuce is fine, Curly lettuce is also fine, round lettuce is fine and Little gem sounds fine but some people are a bit doubtful. I reaserched all of them on google and they seem fine, just please please please, don't feed iceberg. It has high water content and not much nutritional value.

    Hope I helped!

    There are many different leaf lettuces that are fine to feed, Endive, red and green leaf, Boston lettuce. I am not sure what is available where you live, but the nutrition charts Ly put together are a wonderful reference:
