    Is this the right amount of veggies per pig? Also, do pregnant guineas need extra?

    sooo I made a post in another category because it was about housing and someone pointed out that I was feeding them the wrong amount of veggies (there was loads of kale and spinach- too much calcium) so I read the link and changed up their daily veggies a bit. Is this right? I have each pig: 2...

    Good starter veggies!

    Hi! I have two boars (Patches and Carmal). They recently went to the vet where they got prescribed some medicine for their soft stool. The medicine is to be administered twice daily for ten days. They do not like it but will behave long enough for me to syringe feed it to them. I did the first...

    Picky Eater! Help!

    Hi. I have two boars. Patches (older) and Carmal (younger). Carmal is good about eating his veggies, but his favorite is green beans. Patches on the other, is a very picky eater. He will only eat green beans, and, if I’m lucky, corn. This is probably partially my fault. This is my first time...

    Can I Feed Them The Same Vegtables Each Week?

    I give my girls a salad twice a day. I meal plan for the week so the foods that is only safe to for them to eat twice a week, I only give twice a week etc. They get 5-6 different veggies each day with a good variety/variation day to day, so it's never the same each day. Can I just use this same...

    Leaving Veggies Overnight.

    Hi again, guys. Some of you will remember me, since I've made such a bad first impression of myself as an owner LoL. (I'm that guy who let the dog chase after his guinea pig for the first week) But I'm way over past that, and I've made soooo many improvements. Porca is so much better, less shy...

    How To Introduce Veggies

    Hi guys! I wasn't sure where to post this, but I just got my piggies about 5 days ago & I'm worried about their eating habits. I got them from a shelter, so I didn't get much information on what foods they had been eating. I know piggies need 80% hay, some veggies, and maybe some pellets. I just...
