Apple, pear , melon lots of seeds and oats . Alfalfa hay is great , fresh blossom from the garden, fresh flowers and herbs .
if you feed straight from your or a friends garden, make sure no chemical feeds/killers have been used in the surrounding gardens.

I’m watching a couple of guineas for a co-worker and they love getting sliced cucumber, apples and carrot sticks (in addition to the Alfalfa hay and guinea food pellets).

I had a friend who had two. Ben and Jerry. Their cage was in their kitchen. The instant that someone broke open a banana to peel it, Jerry would run round and round in the cage and make noises until he got some banana. It was so awesome.

Timothy hay, green peppers, carrots, parsley, romaine lettuce.
Their favorite fruit is a small melon that looks like a miniature white watermelon. The name is eluding me tonight but the love it! There are a lot of things they won’t eat too that they are supposed to like.

We are currently babysitting two guinea pigs for friends. We’ve found that they absolutely ADORE lettuce! Another favorite of their’s is a full carrot. They seem to enjoy rolling it around the cage!
Another tip if you’re new to guinea pigs: They like paper and cardboard boxes! It gives them a place to hide and something to chew on! ;)
