I weighed the boys today, the H's & The W's have remained the same as last week.
Angus now weighs 1lb 1oz (gained 2oz)
Fergus now weighs 1lb 2oz (gained 3oz)
Is this an average weight gain for a week or does it not matter as long as they are gaining and not losing weight?

seems fine. If you have a look in health section you will see a weighing thread where some people post their piggies' weights. :)

Its weight loss i would mainly worry about Nikki, anything around 2oz is suspicious! Weight gain wise as long as the piggy is not obese a stready gain is fine I think. Most of mine remain fairly constant now they have been here a while. Angus and furgus are doing great then... BUngle was 2 months old on Friday and only weighed in at 10 and a quarter oz! (289g).

It's not just those two Niki - its all Thistle piggies!

All of mine from Thistle have very loud voices and very very greedy tummies!
