    I've been buying Oxbow hay from the hay experts for a while now and my pigs love it, however I've recently aquired more pigs and the hay isn't lasting as long. I just can't afford to do it anymore. A...

    Re: eye infection

    Re: URGENT question.

    Hope your pigs are ok Prayerwarrior. I'd think a closed door with towels at the bottom would be sufficient to keep out fumes so try not to worry too much. Please let us know how they're doing.
