    Can I get my pigs to like pepper?

    All my guinea pigs turn there noses up at bell peppers. We always buy them in & alot of them go uneaten as our family only uses a small 2 or 3 a week. It would be great if the guineas liked them as they are very high in vitamin C!

    Is there a way of getting them to like them?



    I have fussy Pigs!

    To introduce a new food that they don't like, dice it very fine and put it on top of their pellets. They'll get enough of it by mistake to get used to the taste, and then they'll eat larger pieces. I've used this method with my two for several new veggies.

    Just keep trying. Louie turned his nose up at lettuce (crazy boy) for a good 5 YEARS before he decided that is was delicious after all.
