You're costing us a fortune!

I have to change the pellet food like 3 times a day, so consequently it's impossible to keep track of how much of it they're eating.

*Sigh* No wonder he has a dewlap ~

Haha, yeah, mucky pigs!
Figgy is quite clean (except that his long hair trails along the ground.. you ge the idea) and he always pees in the same place, but Serge could care less and pees anywhere including the food, hay, bed...
Might it be a piglet thing? He's not a baby but about 5 months old.

i think its just a piggy thing i have 2 piggies that quite happily sit in there own pee! disgusting little creatures but they're happy.

i dont think piggies are meant to be toilet trained but the do tend to go where they eat!

You're probably right, but in this case, it's curious how Figgy is so picky about where he pees! I suppose he has the sense to not want to sleep and eat in his own defecation. :<>
