I ordered some of these from animal magic, does anyone else feed these to their piggies?

Do you feed them whole or add water to make a mash?

I was going to order these with my last order but like you I wasn't quite sure how to feed them so didn't bother. Interested to know how others feed them to their piggies too. I tried them with the flaked peas but they're not too interested though they seem to a big hit with other folks piggies.

I feed them whole as well but as they are fattening they only get one once a week. I also give flaked peas. The girls weren't sure at first but I persisted with handfeeding them and now they all queue up. :(|)

Ours have a couple a week each dry as they are. It helps to grind down their teeth too as an extra from hay munching :)

I feed them to my outdoor piggies to help them maintain weight in winter and give a few to my piggies inside to chew on although they do not go down well indoors. Mine do love porricge though so I might try them in a mash form to see if they prefer that.
