I was wondering if it was okay to feed guinea pigs parsely? I heard cilantro is fine, but I am not sure about parsley. How much should parsley should I give them? Does it contain Vit. C, like cilantro? Thanks so much!!!
 
My pigs LOVE parsely! I give them lots of it!

I know it's healthy and safe to give to them and it does have vitamin C...but I'm not sure how much you should exactly give them. I probably give my girls too much...but they just love it! It's so cute hearing them chow down. :)
 
Parsely is high in vitamin C, but I've heard that too much of it is a little bad. You could probably feed them it three time a week?
 
Parsley is great for piggies! If you give anything too much it can be bad, unbalancing their diet. You can give pretty much as little or big of amount as you feel they will eat, though they should of course be eating other veggies, too. Red pepper is also an excellent source of vitamin c. I have not heard anything against feeding parsley (as in the amount), so if anyone does, please enlighten me. It is also relatively cheap! I get a large bunch for $0.33 at my grocery store. Thanks, and happy piggy parsley eating! =)
 
Hmm... I though too much parsely was bad. I did a little reading up and it says that parsely is very high in calcium.
 
Ok, thanks for the info. I didn't know that, though they don't get too much of it. Thanks again, I'll be sure to remember that! =)
 
Thanks so much for the information, everyone! I just tried a little parsely with my girls and they love it! Anymore more info on how much to feed daily, weekly, etc. would be greatly appriciated though! Thanks again!
 
Probably just a few pieces a day would be fine. Just don't feed the whole bunch at once or a huge amount, and that should be fine. It's just like spinach. =)
 
I have a small clay flowerpot in their cage. I turn it upside down and put parsley and cliantro into the hole on the bottom of the pot (cut stem side down). The leaves then stick up in the air like a tree and the pigs have fun stretching up to pull pieces out.
