Guinea Pig Advice Needed!!

My darling GP started eating her newspaper (which lines the floor of her hutch) a few weeks ago. I read that its not good for them to be eating so much paper because of the risk of ink poisoning so I put a cardboard tube in her hutch for her to chew on. However, she has eaten all of the tube! (toilet roll size) Is it ok for her to be eating this much cardboard?!! She is outside with lots of grass everyday, its only when she gets put in her nightime hutch that she starts munching. I have had lots of guineas over the last 10 years and have never had this problem!

Sorry this is so long!! TIA

One of my guineas digs to the bottom of the sawdust to rip and eat the newspaper, i think you can buy cardboard tubes for them to eat in the pet shops so i dont think she'll come ot any harm

Mine eat their newspaper too! They don't seem to suffer any ill effects!
