    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    One more question I forgot: At their age (estimated 2-3 months) how much of pellets should I be feeding? Is it still 2 Tbs per pig per day?

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    Update: Introductions yesterday went better than I could have hoped! I saw no aggressive behavior the first four hours and most of that time was spent running laps, popping, and playing. They...

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    Thank you for the ramble, it was actually very reassuring! lol

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    Andrew weighs 490 grams tonight and Avery weighs 577 grams. It surprised me because I initially thought that Avery was the smaller of the two. Both have those tiny, sharp little cat claws that are...

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    I haven't actually weighed them yet, although that would have been a great thing to do when I took them out of their carriers to put in the cages. :P I'll weigh them soon, but both are quite small...

    Diet: Re: Calcium?

    Re: Pig Sitting Conundrum!

    I agree that having the pigs stay with your friends sounds like the best option.

    A 20-minute drive is nothing. I adopted 2 of the 4 pigs I've owned in the past from Knoxville, a 2-hour drive from...

      Cage: Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I'm going to be trying out fleece over a layer of wood pellets this time around, because I've heard so much good stuff about it. This was the only suitable brand I could find locally about 10 minutes...

    And the whole thing is set up on top of 2 IKEA lack tables and, at my Mom's back-saving suggestion, pulled out a foot or so from the wall so I can get behind it for easier cleaning access:

      Cage: Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Thought I'd show off photos of the PigPen, mark 3! It's all ready for piggies! Just got a little more saving up to do; I'm hoping by the end of the holidays I'll be ready! :D

    So at first I was...

    Treats: Re: Piggies and Pumpkin questions

    This is mostly a guess, but I would think the actual hard, pulpy part (the part between the skin and the goop) is probably what is eaten when people eat pumpkins. I mean, pumpkin is a winter squash,...

    Bar biting is never a good thing, and it can absolutely damage their teeth. Doesn't matter at all whether they're using their incisors or their molars (although I doubt they're using their molars --...

    Mites: Re: fleas? or mites? maybe both!

    Sounds like it's probably fleas, as mites don't jump and fleas are celebrated jumpers. If your pigs aren't showing any symptoms of being very irritated by the fleas yet, you might be able to treat...

    Crusty Eyes: Re: Stain in Corner of Guinea Pig's Eye

  25. How Many: Re: Do I keep a mom and baby together?
