Well I'm new and new to guinea pigs.. Well we went to sign my son up for baseball. The place i to go was a Farm and feed store.. That got me thinking they have Hay there and rabbit feed, chicken, cow =, horse stuff. anyway i ask if he could get Timothy hay in which he can't. He did have some alfalfa pellets like what you would feed a horse for treats i think. Im not sure if i can give it to my 2 guinea pigs they are under 6 mos old..
