Can Guinea Pigs Eat Dead Leaves?

Dead or dry leaves are those leaves which have fallen from trees or plants and are longer connected to the stem which gives them nutrients and life.

As a result, they dry up and die.

With this they lose their color and texture, becoming brown, grey, yellow or black in color and becoming more brittle in texture.

They become easier to break up as a result.
