I agree g. pigs are great but do a litte research. They need extra vit c and they need a diet with Timothy hay and not alfalfa. Many products are alfalfa based. They also should not be put into a wire cage bottom. And don't forget your fruits and veggies too! They do need exersice or they get fat and that's not healthy.
Just in general most little critters including birds have dietary needs but most are easily fulfilled with a little knowledge. I even feed my guys sprouts and mash I make up for the birds. They seem to really like it.
A good place to look is www.peteducation.com
Of course you can do searches and find lots on info.
