Mine love Harringtons especially Velvet who would eat them morning, noon and night if I let her! Remember to gradually change from your normal pellets to Harringtons so that your piggies get used to them. I have 5 piggies so I get my pellets in 10kg sacks as its much cheaper and they get through a 2kg pack very quickly even though they only get a breakfast of 2-3 small handfuls a day.

It is a great reasonably priced nugget. Just wish I could get my lot to eat it. All 9 turned their noses up at it, like they do with most nuggets though.

Would you recommend trying them on the Wragg or just stick to what they’re used too which is the Harrington’s?
Sorry, new Wagg pellets and Harrington's (which are the old Wagg ones) are two different products. I am not quite up to all the new products that are coming onto the market!

Harrington's are not the very best, but they are decent enough when you have to take price and availability into account, especially with more than just 2-4 piggies.
The new Wagg pellets are grain-based, which isn't the main ingredient in Harrington's.

Have a look on here and make your own decision:

Thank you. I think I’ll stick with Harrington’s. It may not be the best but it’s certainly not the worst and it took me forever to change my piggies from muesli on to pellets so I think I’ll stick with what they like :)
