Can anyone give me an estimate on how long 10 pounds of pellets and 25 pounds of hay would last, with two piggies? Also, what are the dimensions of the box that 25 lbs of kms hay comes in?

10 lbs of pellets would probably last 4-6 weeks, and 25 lbs of hay probably around the same time
The pellets should last roughly a month or so and the hay really depends on how you use it and the guinea pigs themselves. You should probably expect something roughly around 5-ish pounds of hay a month, maybe less maybe way more.
I totally disagree with 25 pounds a month for two pigs.
I bought 45 pounds of hay in July along with 25 pounds of pellets.
I had two pigs until October, then I got two more, and I just got another last week.
I just ordered hay and pellets yesterday.
I think the 45 pounds of hay would have lasted me a full 6 months/
6 weeks is a month and a half, your supposed to give guinea pigs unlimited hay... So... @pigger123
Ok thanks but can anyone tell me how big the box is?
4 to 6 weeks? How much are you feeding your pigs? There are 160 ounces in 10 pounds. So if you feed an eighth of a cup to each pig that is 80 days, or a little over 11 weeks. For the hay it would last much longer. Assuming the pigs ate 2.5 pounds of hay each it would list 5 months.
Im good at estimating pellets, but Im not sure how big 25lb of hay is.
@CudsGwennyPash, a cup is capacity, 10 lbs is weight. You can't use the weight of the pellets to determine the capacity. So the only way to know for sure is to weigh 1/8 cup of pellets.
And a 1/4 cup isn't necessarily too much to feed.
You might want to look on a bag of pellets and hay.... There are 16 ounces in a pound. I get 50 pounds of pellets and that is 800 ounces. Feeding my four girls lasts me 200 days. How exactly do I have the perfect amount of food if I am using the wrong conversion. If the conversion is wrong then why do they put it on food labels? Next time you want to correct someone make sure they are wrong first.
There are 16 ounces in a pound and 8 FLUID ounces in a cup. Therefore, 1/8 of a cup is 1 fluid ounce. So, each pig should get 1-2 fluid ounces per day. That amount could be any weight. 1/8 cup of pellets would weigh much more than 1/8 cup of air, for example.
How exactly do you think this has anything to do with fluid ounces. No one said about anything about fluid ounces... except you. So according to you, my bag of hay that is empty, which is 16 ounces... or a pound, will hold two 8 ounce cups of water. If your correct than why is the bag not full right now? I am going to believe the people who package food, and put the weights on there, rather than someone who isn't in the food industry.
Im not sure what the heck we are talking about anymore, but all Im saying is if you give your pigs 1/4 a cup of pellets and you have a 10lb bag it should last 6 weeks
Cups are fluid ounces. You are saying that 10 lbs of pellets equals 20 cups.
