Fodder Harvest Day!

Today, the wheat fodder is ready to harvest! All animals get 2% of their body weight in fodder. But since it is winter, and there have been very few greens for me to forage for the rabbits (and they have super sensitive digestive tracts), I am giving them 1% of their weight.

The rabbits really loved the green fodder, not so crazy about the root mats. But even the babies got into it.

But the guinea pigs literally tore it apart. Consumed the roots, seeds, and greens whole. This hopefully will reduce our pellet load and provide the animals with fresh vitamins and minerals all year.
