I find when getting them to hand feed look at them more side on & I used to lay on the floor to be more their level. Works with my more timid pigs

The things we do for our piggies. To an outsider I probably looked insane laying on the floor next to their cage trying not to look directly at them :lol!:

Mine ate from my hands quickly too which surprised me. They will eat from me when I'm holding them but they won't voluntarily come up to me for food. They are however getting braver when I'm cleaning them out and feeding them, by venturing our of their log tunnel :)
