  2. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Hey Everyone, I'm considering adopting / buying (preferably adopting) two guinea pigs. It depends on whether the shelter in my area has guinea pigs or not.. they only really advertise for cats and dogs. This would be the second time for me, I've had 2 in the past, one who lived for 8 years and...
  3. Degu Discussion
    I went to a small petstore near me and found that they had the Sunseed food for Chinchillas. Since I can't find and Degu or Guinea Pig food without sugar, I was wondering if it would be ok just to give them this. Also, what else would I be able to give them in addition to their normal food?:gab:

    Has anyone had any experience with Sunseed sunscription Degu food? I've noticed that there are not very many "degu" foods out there, and I'm wondering if this is a good one...

    I can't seem to get my goos to eat their veggies. They(or at least one of them) eat sweet potato, but they wont eat anything else I put in there. I've tried kale, spinach, cucumber peels, broccoli, a bit of bell pepper, and even a tiny bit of tomato, and they still won't eat anything but guinea...

    I'm getting my 1st degus:hapdance: and I need to know what to feed them. The owner of the rescue center I am getting them from said that I should only feed them degu food because all guinea pig and chinchilla food has molasses in it. What does everyone feed they're degus?

  9. Degu Discussion

  10. Degu Discussion
    Is there any way to regulate how much one degu eats without limiting food to the other? I give my Degus crocus bulbs to chew on because they're nice and hard and are good for gnawing. They're only small, so I put three in my degus cage over night. I heard crunching all night so I assumed they...
