    Cute but sad Gif

    Pellets Convinced My Mom not to Give the "Gourmet" Food! (and c&c talk, oops)

    So my mom and I were in Walmart buying hay (We buy Kaytee, 3-4 bags at a time and that lasts about 2 weeks, we are going to order in a bigger quantity soon, as we are ordering from drsfostersmith.com, and she asked about the gourmet food. There was one with stuff and one without, so I said...

    Hay I have a two month old and a over 6 months old, what hay do I feed?

    Feed both of them timothy hay and pellets in the cage and then every day take Bear out and give her some alfalfa pellets/hay or parsley.

    Want a Guinea Pig(s) Can long haired live with short haired guinea pigs?

    No combination is better then the other, and barbering may occur in any guinea pig. You can keep them together, many of us do :)

They have multiple hideys, dishes, and bottles. If I didnt have seperate things for each of them I know mama pig would beat up her...

    Special Needs Calcium deposits, light coloured droppings?

    I know its not preferable, but if you are in a tight spot and cant spend $12-$15 on a bag of food then it can do. Ive been feeding it for 3 months as Im in a rough spot with jobs right now, and I cant order from drsfostersmith.com to get then with free shipping with my hay and bedding, Also...

    Special Needs Calcium deposits, light coloured droppings?

    What kind of hay is in the mix? Dont feed anything containing alfalfa. What veggies? Parsley, kale, cilantro, etc may cause calcium issues. Switch cold turkey over to the pellets, they will eat them eventually. If you find they are too expensive Kaytee has pellets called "Timothy Complete"...
