Okay this is probably a silly question, but how do I feed my new guinea pigs a carrot? I asked, earlier this week, for info on guinea pigs because we were thinking of getting our daughter 1. Well we went today and ended up with 2. They were so addorable I couldn't resist and now both of my daughters have 1. Lol! We just got them settled in but I don't know if I am supposed to cut up the carrot or just lay 1 in there with them. Thanks so much anyone!

Just put the carrot in with them, They should have no troubles devouring it,
If they do need it cut up (which I doubt) you'll quickly know by just observing.

The more they do on their own the better for their teeth.

You'll have found out by now that guinea pigs love carrots! No need to peel them. Lettuce too; the local grocery store used to give me boxes of 'outside' lettuce leaves. Don't give them anything gassy, such as onions, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, etc.

Here's some info:
