After finding out on here you can digital scales brilliantly cheaply in Argos, I bought some yesterday and tonight weighed all the pigs. What a good excuse for some pigtures!

Hmm, not quite big enough for Whiskeys..

My sister thought weighing them made it look like we were going to cook them...so she decided to season Pixie...!

Both were very skitty when we got them but are calming down a lot now. I was told they were 9 months old, but Bounty weighs less than Honey whose only 4-5 months so doubt it now unless they ate very little!

Bumble, my second heaviest pig, probably needs an even bigger bowl!

JoJo, my previously asbo piggy, moved in with his two wifeys this weekend and is much less asbo-y!

And some pics of the new superhutch (proud of my DIY work!)

Thank you all :)) I think they are beautiful too but I may be a bit biased, haha!

They are brilliant scales, for £6.99 I was a bit dubious but they are really good and easy to read, can't believe I faffed about with old fashioned needle ones for so long, digital is the way forward! The bowl didn't come with them though, I pinched that from the kitchen.

fab piggies how many in total? and how much per week to look after?

I have 11 now - was meant to stop at 8, but Honey had a surprise for us, then I saw the Gumtree ones and have always wanted an abby but never had one and they were living with rabbits and I wasn't having that!)

As for how much, not really thought about it tbh. I know I use a bale of paper every 2 weeks and thats just under £7, bale of hay around 2-3 weeks and that's £7.50 at the moment, and feed, well the Gerty giant bags last me a good 5 weeks or so and they are £25, also currently have P@H nuggets that are the same timeframe and £18. So an average of about £17 I guess? I am changing them to allen and page feed tho at a more pocket friendly £12 a bag!

Thanks, I am very proud of the hutch/ramp arrangement. I have never liked shop bought ramp hutches, so making my own when I needed more space seemed the best option!

Someone else asked me if Bumble was a rabbit with no ears :{
