...and its drug like effect on GPs.

Is it ok to let them have it in moderation, or can it actually do any damage.

Our girls love it and I must admit the results are comical but don't want to give it to them if it's likely to cause problems.

I probably but a small bag once a month and it lasts about 4 days confused .

Hi- all guineas are different .When I gave my GP1 and GP2 coriander it was probably too much and it co-incided with them coming in for winter.
(Smaller cage, more noise indoors, being forced to stare at each other all night grin )
But they went ballistic, our very gentle GP2 climbed onto GP1 from the side and went for him (unlike GP3 who tries to bonk him from the backend but no violence just a hmm look from GP1 you're on the wrong boat there, sonny. :/

I gave them a couple of sprigs when I made salsa (they didn't eat the mint. They don't like basil)

Maybe just a couple of sprigs and watch their antics. Ir sounds like it turns your guineas mad in a good way grin

(the only damage is it's relatively high in calcium, so a couple of sprigs as a treat. GP1 idea of a couple of sprigs isn't mine)

That's good news smile .

Ours have had it a couple of times (it was about half a bag the first time blush ) - we only give it to them when they're out in the run with a couple of boxes/tubes to play with. They generally run round like nutters popcorning and chasing each other for about 20 minutes, than flake out together in a furry heap looking extremely cute and pleased with themselves grin .

Haven't tried then with mint, but they love basil.

Luckily for them Daddy Pig (DH) is a chef so they get more than their fair share of goodies.
