    Sherri B - try giving her cilantro, parsley, red leaf lettuce, cherry tomatoes. The guineapigcages.com site has a whole section on nutrition.

    I do I do!! I love my piggies. Originally, we were going to get a pet for my grandkids but I after I bought the Peruvian Silkie (which I had no idea what that entailed), cage, etc, my DIL changed her mind. I kept him and the kids named him Fuzzy. He wasn't fuzzy very long when his silk hair keep growing. He was extremely, social. When anybody held him, he always came back to me full of chatter. I think he was telling on them. 2 yrs later, we got Zorra and had a couple of babies. The babies only lived 2 or 3 years but Fuzzy died when he was 7. Losing her mate, Zorra went into a tailspin...wouldn't eat or anything. Then, I got Beyonce, yes, that's right. She was named after a gorgeous black lady and Zorra snapped out of it. This time of year is cornsilk season. They can't enough! I give them husks and all but they won't eat the corn unless I cook it. Microwave 3 min. There are no 2 alike in personalities or differences but be sure they get quality time every day and you will be rewarded with much love.

    I had a guinea with my first graders, and he was well-loved. He would squeel very loudly when we came back from the lunch room because he knew the kids would save their carrots, apples, broccoli, cucumbers, etc. for him. He liked to eat almost anything. As a reward, the kids would sit in a circle and Ginger would run around to each one of them to be held and petted. They make wonderful pets, and much more fun than hamsters because they are not nocturnal and will stay awake during the day.
