Hi,

I am wanting to grow a little garden for my Joe. I was just wondering what some good herbs are to include in his diet. Specifically, is it okay to feed guinea pigs fresh rosemary and fresh mint? If yes, how often would you recommend?
 
I don't know about rosemary but they can eat mint! I believe mint should only be offered a couple of times a week. It will make them smell nice, though!
 
Both are very high in calcium, feed sparingly and infrequently.
 
I DIDN'T KNOW MINT IS HIGH IN CALCIUM :eek:
I thought it was considered a forage, and I was feeding it daily. I guess thats not happening anymore.
