I usually give mine say a small handful of food per pig twice a day and they seem fine and certainly dont loose weight.

Their diet should consist of about 70% hay and that should be available at all times

i believe adult piggies should have 30-50g of nuggets per day each and younger piggies should have unlimted nuggets, as hannah said their main diet should be hay and vegetables :)

Mine get a handful per guinea a day. So those living alone get a handful per bowl, those happily married/siblings get two handfuls in their bowl!

The only one who empties the bowl is Bumble who has tonight been warned by my vet he is due for a diet...whoops...
