Exactly-ish how much food a day do your piggies have? (no matter when they are fed)

In a typical day Tonic and Guinea have;
at least half a cucumber
three carrots
handful of green beans
3 leaves each of cabbage greens
a spring onion (to share, when I have it)
some florets of broccoli
an apple (every other day)
a banana (every other day)

PLUS no end of grass, hay and dry food!

This is all much more for the girls due to there being 6 of them!

It's so hard to tell really! My three have three meals of fruit/veg a day. They might have for example for one meal - two inches of cuke, handful of spinach, same of watercress/ lamb's lettuce, few bits of parsley, one carrot, three strawberries,three grapes, and half a little gem lettuce. Then they have hay and cereal whenever they want it.

oh and newspaper ;D

Mine have a big fresh food 'meal' twice a day then often a few little extras in between!

They have carrot and something green and leafy llike greens, lettuce (not iceberg!), cabbage etc every morning. Then cucumber and something else for supper at night.

I have just done my weekly shop today and bought (for 12 pigs and 1 rabbit)

4 large bags carrots
5 round lettuces
2 packs Romaine
8 cucumbers
4 celery
2 bags spring greens
2 sweetheart cabbages
Bag of apples

I also pick them fresh grass and dandelions whenever I see them!
