If I'm holding my pig, Spring, and am in the process of eating ANYTHING, she will fight me for it. This includes, ice cream bars, steak, chips, cookies, etc. I end up having to put her next to me on the couch so she can just watch me eat. I call her my little garbage disposal.

My pigs eat a crouton size whole wheat bread once in a blue moon.

For pigs, stick with the good food. Avoid giving processed people food.

All my critters will put up a good fight to get wheat thins. But they're only allowed the tiniest crumb once every couple of weeks. The little slobs are all quite fat enough already.

(Oh, did I just hear the pot calling the kettle black?)

Butter will eat anything I give her! Cocoa loves wheat thins. However, all my pigs prefer chocolate, especially Jonah. And I can't eat ice cream in here or they go nuts and give me a headache!

I just want to go on the record saying that I do not regularly give any of my pigs large portions of any human food besides vegetables. Spring just will take a nibble of something if I have it on a fork going into my mouth. I then just put her down and go and get her lettuce so we can both eat at the same time. She is just my one pig who doesn't have any qualms about biting into anyting on a fork or spoon.

I'm going on record to say that I DO NOT give Jeffy chocolate, but if I'm eating even a small piece he goes nuts trying to smell my mouth - Scooter did this too. It must be a smell they really like!

Scooter did enjoy a noodle here and there, but never more than an inch - and this wasn't too often.

Stick with fruit for treats!

I don't feed it to them!!!!! Remember when Jonah got ahold of the Resee cup? I let the others smell it and they go nuts! I don't give any of that stuff to them!!! It's just funny to see what they wheek for.

My old vet explained to me that guinea pigs are gut fermenters and offering them anything other than plants is putting them at a high risk for gastrointestinal problems. You may get lucky a time or two and sometimes you won't see the symptoms right away, but why take the risk. Just stick to the safe plants on the list.

I forgot to mention that some people think that breads and crackers are a plant product because they are primarily wheat. Keep in mind they are held together with things like eggs and butter. Most processed foods have many added ingredients that humans shouldn't even be eating let alone small pets.

No, I think Lynx thought I was serious. I guess we shouldn't joke around saying stuff like I did, new members might think it's okay to feed them junk like that. I just meant if I would allow them to eat that stuff, they would. :)

Same here VMOUSE, any slight crinkle of a plastic bag send my pigs into a feeding frenzy. Although I try never to feed them plastic bags.
