Coriander, you can be quite generous with it. I use it as treats between meals for them :)
Green beens I would say no more than one per pig per day, but I hope that this is correct as that's what I do! If someone could confirm I'd be grateful too :)

1 sprig?! I don't buy it often though when I do (in large bunches) I give them quite a few sprigs between them each lol They would go bad before I even touched them with only 1 sprig each lol though I used to measure 6g each but since I get it so infrequently I don't bother.

Would you recommend the same (sprig) for parsley?

I've tried green beans once but mine nibbled a little then turned their noses up at them.

We feed around 8 sprigs each around 3 times a week

Definitely less parsley though as higher in calcium. Parsley we only feed every other week

Mine aren't too hot on coriander either so I only give it every few weeks when I get a huge bunch for very little. They LOVE parsley though I am aware the calcium content is high so I buy that as infrequently too.

MY piggies love green beans they 1 at each feed so 2 beans a day each - they are small fine green beans tho. I limit the parsley aswell because of the calcium but have found they like basil just as much. I did buy coriander but as u say the bunches are too big so most of it went bad. My parsley and basil are live herbs in pots on my kitchen windowsill so i might get a live coriander plant aswell.

I never thought to try coriander with them, I'll give it a go! They go nuts for parsley though! Will try and limit that a bit, they won't like me for it though!

Yeah, we had to do this... Coriander proved a more than acceptable substitute.... however nothing matches ruby red gem lettuce :)) Food of the Gods apparently
