THe girls like the dried and fresh corn husks and silk but Chip only likes it fresh.
THey all like strawberries.
Nobody likes squash.
When I trim brussel sprouts for the humans, I usually give them all a little taste. THey all love brussell sprouts in this house.
We also like green peppers, carrots, red leaf lettuce, and cilantro.
Oliver will do just about anything for some friseé lettuce; Bubba will stand "on your brick" for red bell pepper; and Percy will let you pick him up and hold him without chattering if you have apple peel.
Then again, all three will do just about anything for some fresh apple peel, especially if it's fresh from the orchard apple peel!
It says beet greens only once or twice a month.
They also like their assorted lettuces - we started growing our own! Spring mix is an actual plant, all the different ones were growing together. I don't know if it's some sort of hybrid or what, but it was kind of cool and 1.25 at the market. We are also growing celery, but it seems that it'll be another month or so before it's ready.

He NEEDS bell peppers for the vitamin C. He does NOT need fruit on a regular basis. Guinea pigs weren't engineered to process sugar very well, and should only have fruit as a treat occasionally.
Kale is too high in calcium and oxalic acid to be fed regularly, and can contribute to painful, expensive bladder stones. Red or green leaf lettuce is a much better choice.
