okay so the other day i bought a pack of browns natural herbs-n-hay rolls,i thought it was just timothy hay and parsley, but each little role(there are 5 small ones) has a sweet potato center :\ these are the ingredients:
sun-cured timothy hay meal,dried sweet potato,parsley and wheat gum flour.
so i would like to know if they can eat the sweet potato or if i should take it out before i give them the role?
 
Sweet potato in small amounts is fine. Regular potato is bad, though. A previous poster mentioned their Kaytee Timothy Hay had bits of sweet potato in it, and they were told that was ok, so you should be just fine.
 
They're ok, but honestly, the pigs would rather have fresh herbs as treats, and they're less expensive on your pocketbook.

I once tried my two out by offering them a store-bought treat along with a fresh herb. They took the herb first every time.
