I am not really sure . . . but I think it is safe. However it is my recollection that it isn't a big favorite with degus. You could pinch a couple of leaves off and see what they think. If they like it, wait a couple of days and then offer a small amount again and see how they react a second time. You want to go slowly, because you want to know if it will be causing any gut issues.
I put a small sprig in the cage for the trio to share and it was quite popular!
My first question is about if it is okay to give them fresh undried twigs. We have apple, pear, cherry and plum trees in our garden (We don't use pesticides or anything else on our trees). I always give my guinea pigs fresh twigs with the leaves still on (I don't clean these twigs). Can I gave the same to the degus?
Because at the moment I am giving them twigs I have and dried for over a year. These twigs don't have any leaves and are completely clean. If fresh twigs are safe, how often can I give them fresh twigs with leaves?
The other question I have is if I need to dry bigger branches? At the moment I have some beech branches (some I even cleaned the bark of it) do I need to let it dry a few months before I can give it to them? Or is it already safe to give? And is this the same for all the safe woods?
My last question is if teak wood is safe to give? I really love these teak wooden ledges: dierencompleet.nl/product/teakhouten-plateau-recht/
Fresh, undried twigs with leaves are fine in the species you mentioned. It's best to give a variety of species so they don't get too much of anything that can be slightly problematic like cherry or birch. Lots of things can be slightly problematic if they eat lots and lots of it, so don't be too concerned about that, just always provide a mix of different things. As with any fresh food that you suddenly introduce, especially if they aren't used to fresh plants at all yet, introduce things in small amounts and slowly at first to give their guts time to adapt.
You don't need to dry out larger branches, just clean off any bird poo and I always used to remove lichen and wash off algae if there are substantial amounts.
Do you mean a lavender as in the scented herb, in the form of a small tree? If so, yes, that is safe, but I would only offer in small quantities because it's so pungent. If it has been recently bought, I would not offer it as it is likely to be doused in pesticides.
Start off with small bits, as with any new foods. You may even find they won't touch it for a couple of days!
As with anything, a balanced diet
