Can piggies have every type of melon that is available (hope thats not a duh question ;)) and do some prefer others more?

Relatively new to giving my lot melon. So far they have had Galia and Cantaloupe - the latter being their favourite.

Was thinking of maybe a change?

My boys like them all - skin too!

Haven't tried watermelon yet - anyone had a go? I imagine it might give them a pink chin ;D

Oh yes Duke thinks canteloupe, watermelon and now honeydew are just the ants pants ;D
This has been the main part of his diet since he became really ill. This along with CC has saved him, the water content
is high and with hot weather as well it's been a saviour.

Haven't tried watermelon cos it's so big and no-one else likes it :) Not sure if I've seen it already sliced?

They do make that. Try Waitrose or Morrisons. Also you can get a ready sliced melon mix.

Well there was lots of popcorning and daring each other to eat it, I left them to it and when I came back most of it was gone not sure if they ate it because it was the only option in the bowl at the time. Will try it again next week.

Mine have had honeydew, they all love it. We don't have it that much, maybe once every couple of weeks, and they always get their share
