    Re: New & would like advice on adoption

    In addition to 4boipigs' good advice, my gut is that this family likely won't follow through with coming to visit the pigs at your place. This family lives about an hour away, which makes it...

    Hay: Re: I've had it with Oxbow hay

    I totally sympathize with you as I'm in the same predicament. The hay just isn't very good this year. I've tried KMS Hayloft, Oxbow, GuineaDad, and Viking so far this year and they all have a lot...

    I use fleece but for vacation coverage, I've always used CareFresh, since the poos fall down into the crevices. Another reason why I started taking the pigs to the pet store for boarding is that the...

    That is true the corrugated box is part of the 3 lb. However, because there are less brown hay than other brands I've bought, it somewhat offsets the weight of the box and their hay isn't dusty. ...

    Hay: Re: KMS Bluegrass hay

    The last time I bought KMS Bluegrass was Nov 2020 and it was terrible. The outside layer looked good but once you get past the outside, the inside was brown and very dusty. I think I still have a...
