Hello Everyone!

My name is Chris also know as piggiepigss. I have three sow piggies; Nova, Bella, & Penelope. They actually all went to the vet not that long ago & are in perfect health. They currently reside in a Midwest Guinea Habitat. I just ordered another one to attach to it, so they have a bit more room. They get unlimited Timothy hay, a very high quality pellet I purchase off Dr.foster&smith with all organic ingredients, as well as regular fresh veg. I love fleece bedding, but lately have been using softwood bedding due to it being easier to upkeep.

Right now it's below freezing winter here in newengland, Massachusetts & the piggies are all busy in there piggie pouches. I can't wait till spring I'm going to build a rather massive outdoor run, so they can get fresh grass and fresh air as well.

I look forward to learning more to help my piggie ladies as well as encountering some piggie people as crazed as myself. LOL

Yay! Another Mass. member! I live in Western Mass and man has it been cold! My 2 girls stay in their fleece forest or bunk beds most of the time to stay warm. I recently switched from fleece over Uhaul to fleece over wood pellets and am loving it. Great to meet you.

Yes it's been snowing all morning. :( & I'm going to sew up a couple fleece liners soon & buy a little hand held vacuum. That'll make life easier.
