Mine do that - I think they do it when they are confused or feeling a bit nervy!

Am used to it by now - I do have 15 pigs in the house at the moment including fosters!

I call it 'munching'

I am worried now - one of my piggies called Truffle had a spur on the side of her tooth - she had that taken off a while ago and ever since she has been grinding her teeth? could this be due to her being in pain or would this just be because her mouth feels different now?

I would say its because of the difference now.. but quite oftenpiggies just grind their teeth.. if it hurts then she may not be eating?
