    How to get pig to eat veggies?

    I just rescued a pig from a bad home life. She has lived by herself for almost a year (hoping to put her with my current 2 girl pigs), got hay every so often and never got veggies

    Last night I tried to give her some green leaf lettuce (figured it would be a good starting veggie) but she never ate it. I figured maybe it was because she was in a new environment and I was watching her so I left it in her cage for a few hours. When I check it again, it was still there.

    How do I get more veggies into her diet? Poor thing didn't even know what to do with the lettuce

    Thank you!

    She may start eating after she's been there a while. Drape something over one end of the cage and put her hay, food, and water underneath. That will protect her from the house eagles until she decides there aren't any.
