1) Is that "pet grass" that they sell at pet stores okay for guinea pigs?
2) Alternatively, I was thinking of buying grass seeds to grow indoors for them during the winter as a fun little treat. Is there any type that they shouldn't have? I assume barley and wheat grass are ok to give them?
3) Am I correct that all types of hay are good for pigs (other than alfalfa, which I know is good only for pregnant and nursing sows and young pigs under 6 months)?
I was giving mine Timothy hay all along but recently started giving them orchard grass or the orchard/timothy blend from Oxbow. They LOVE the orchard grass and get much more excited about it than they ever did for Timothy hay.

You can provide good hay variety by offering good quality 1st and 2nd cutting timothy, orchard grass, oat hay and bluegrass. The boys also like the so-called 'botanical' hay that Oxbow offers.

If you do a search, previous GL members (Momo? others?) have posted directions on how to grow them.
