Carrot Tops

Can degus have carrot tops?
Is it safe for them to eat the stem and the leaves?
Thanks!

I guess no one really knows

I know my chinchillas can have the leaves so I was just curious about the degus..

I guess I'll just hold off on the carrot tops for now

I think they can as long as it isn't too much...but my degus won't touch them.

I'd be very careful giving them the leaves as too much greenary can cause them to bloat. The carrot top and stalk probably would be ok but i'd steer away from the leaves

My degus are a little picky with what they eat so I don't know if mine will eat them either
