Can Guinea Pigs Eat Delicata Squash?

Delicata squash is also known as peanut squash, Bohemian squash, and sweet potato squash. It is relatively small compared to some other squashes. It is a winter squash, which means we can eat delicata squash 2-4 times per week. However, unlike most winter squash, the skin of the delicata squash isn't that tough. The humans still weren't sure if it was soft enough for use to eat it, though, so they peeled our delicata squash to be on the safe side. You'll also want to have your human use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and stringy parts before feeding it to us.

It's like a yellow squash and a pumpkin had a baby.
New food! New food! Me first! Me first!

At first, all three of us ate delicata squash together...

...But then Broccoli got bored, and it was just Buffy and myself left.

We were definitely excited to try delicata squash at first, although one by one, we each got bored of it, until we left several chunks untouched on the plate at the end. We're still glad we got to try it, though. Delicata squash gets 4/5 stars!
