if you look the rate at which the area increases goes up by 1 grid length/approx 3 square foot for each pig, so I would say 2x7 grids for 5 pigs, 2x8 for 6 etc- just a guess but I think that's how I would work

I would say just look at the square footage IYSWIM, so 6x3 would have a square of 18, so would actually be bigger than 7x2 which would be 14.

I might be totally wrong though- am just thinking it's probably minimum square footage per piggie!
