Hey, I found this on Rhubard, it's all bad - don't feed it to them.

Parts Known to be Poisonous: Raw leaves; blade of the leaf even after cooking - anthraquinone glycosides and soluble oxalates, also possibly calcium oxylate crystals. (Abdominal cramps, burning of mouth and throat, headache, weakness, nausea and vomiting, coma; may be fatal.)

hmm thats what Im not sure about (like Im not feeding it to my pigs - no way I would risk it) but just curious, because all the sites ive looked it up on say the leaves & blades of the leaves are poisenous but states nothing in relation to the 'stalk' - which is what looks like celery but is red.

awh well search continues.. lol

Yeah humans can eat the stalks of rhubarb - its used in many desserts etc

I was wondering if like humans though can piggies have the stalk too? They love the crunch of celery - if its safe - Im sure they would love the crunch/sweetness that rhubarb offers, similar to celery.

?? Still seeking answers, so confusing this damn veggie/fruit/thingymabob

Might have to wait for Jess on this one lol, I don't think they can eat it though ... but no I don't think they advise it for piggies ... everything I've read says no, they don't actually specify though .. but I think it's an unsafe one.

The girls like sweet potato but wont touch pumpkin. I peel sweet potato cause I dont like the look of the skin...I wouldnt eat it so I dont feed it to them. But then again I only have 2 pigs so it doesnt take much time to peel about 1cm of sweet potato every now and again.

but all the good stuff is in the skin ... I love sweet potato that's been baked and I eat it with the skin on, but then that might be because it's cooked lol

But I was always told that fruit and vegies held the majority of vitamins etc in the skin.

Can anyone tell me are all beans bad for guinea pigs? When it says "raw beans" can you give them to them cooked?

how about orange skin? or leaves from corn?

Mine ate the orange peel the first time they tasted orange.
Subsequently, they knew better, they just leave the peel alone, cleaned out !

From my opinion, green beans are good for them, just not the beans like navy beans, lima beans, those kind that are dried. does that make any sense? You should know I am blonde and find it hard to actually explain what I mean!
My piggies love pumpkin skin, sweet potato skin and especially the pumpkin seeds, they go crazy for them! Now I haven't read anywhere weather they are good or bad(pumpkin seeds that is) so it may pay to get another opinion.

I'm going to bring up an old subject .. Rhubarb Stalks .. anyone know ... we worked out that the leaves are dangerous, but what about the stalks???

Beans as in the long green beans, mine love them ... crunch factor I think ...

Mine are picky on Zucchini, but Charlie loves it (yay beause I was given a bag of them lol)

Has anyone ever tried egg plant?? It's not on any good or bad list, but I did find a list that said not sure because there just wasn't enough information on it ... I have been given about 4 bags of the small mini ones and i've just chopped 2 up and shared it out ... all the piggies went for it and munched in ... i'll let you know if there is anything negative, but so far they seem to like the taste ..

Thats an interesting question Tanya. I have never even thought about Egg Plant actually.

I swear I read somewhere it was poisenous to gpigs. But I wouldnt hold me for my word on that one, I dont remember where I read that LOL

I would like to know though. Jess, any1?? lol

I never found out about rhubarb stalks either. I was curious also.

My girls love kale (although I can only get it at the markets at the organic stall, so it's a real treat) and they also love parsley.

I don't know about orange skin, however my girls will eat the orange and leave the skin alone.

Kale is awesome for both piggies and humans. It's full of lots of great stuff and can taste awesome. It's expensive to buy, but worth it. I spend at least $6/week on buying kale - and that's only two tiny bunches.
