    Ok so I know on average, how much to feed my guinea pig, and he's a very healthy weight. How much does everyone else feed theirs? I just want to compare it :p

    Mine get unlimited hay, their food bowl for their nuggets gets changed every day, they don't normally eat all of those. I also give mine veg in the morning and the evening x

    A lot of it depends on what food you are feeding and what you are supplementing each diet with.

    For example: I have 7 guineas, in spring / summer they are out eating grass when it has the most freshness and nutrition, in the evening they are back in with their hay. They have a small handful of pellets but these are barely touched.
    The rest of the year they will have more pellets and hay as the grass is pretty useless, this means a small handful per piggy.

    I have had guineas for years, you get the knack of how much to feed :)
