Is it ok for me to feed 1-2 sprigs of parsley every other day per pig?

Ly listed on her nutrition chart to feed parsley 2-4 times a week, but I just thought to double check that's it's ok to feed it 4 times a week. I'm trying to feed my guinea pigs more vegetables that are higher in vitamin C.
 
How old are your pigs. It's higher in Calcium so if their older it's better for only once or twice a week.
 
It's perfectly fine.

Chester is about one and a half, and Dina just turned two.
 
Parsley is higher in calcium. You should try feeding your pigs green peppers. It's higher in vitamin C and lower in sugar, and can be fed daily, rather than parsley.

Sorry, but it's not perfectly fine. In pigs that are over 6 months, it's better to feed 1-2 sprigs of parsley only a couple of times a week.

Parsley isn't high in Vit. C, it's high in calcium. There are many veggies that are better for C content.
