    Hay/alfalfa - Will this be ok for my guinea pigs

    Please check this site out & tell me if you think this would be ok for my guinea pigs http://pennstate.craigslist.org/grd/4013109278.html
    I live in around that area so I know it's not fake or anything like that
    But I want to make sure this would be ok for them before I go out & buy it?
    Please let me know

    The mixed hay in your first post sounds good. Pigs don't need alfalfa hay except maybe as a supplement to regular hay when they're very young, so you'd never get rid of a bale of it. The mixed in the second post doesn't say what it is.

    I I ow this is probably a dumb question but how do you know what kind of hay is what. Can you give the piggies the same hay as you give horses - forgive my ignorance but I am still learning what's ok & what's not. They grow horse hay right here behind my house.

    So it is ok to give a guinea pig clover?! @bpatters, I was wondering because around me everything is a mixed grass hay. I cannot seem to find straight Timothy hay

    You do not need straight timothy. Any mixed grass hay is fine to feed.
    Clover is not grass, and it's quite high in calcium.
