This is the first time we've had artichokes in our garden. I am curious if the leaves of the plant are safe for guinea pigs to eat. Thanks.

Dunno. They can have artichoke, but nothing I see says anything about the leaves.

Our pigs love it. It's low calcium. Yet, since it's distantly related to cacti, it's also higher in sodium and potassium, hence that half for 3-4 pigs is enough. Most pigs won;t eat the leaves, but love to eat the inner part.
