    No. Ly&pigs is no longer active on here, and nothing has been done to the chart.

    Oh okay. Do you know of any veggie lists that are as detailed but updated as that one? Or should I go by that? I read that I should be giving kale more than once or twice a week

    That one is fine -- lots of folks use it.

    But no, you shouldn't be giving kale more often than that. It's very high in calcium and vitamin A, and you don't want to overdo it.

    The main changes to the chart have to do with romaine lettuce and cilantro. While romaine is no higher in calcium than the other lettuces, it causes some pigs to excrete large amounts of calcium which could lead to bladder stones. Cilantro does the same thing.

    Is there a type of lettuce I should be giving them daily instead of romaine? Right now Iím using red leaf lettuce. I just got my 2 guys on Monday and have so far given them red leaf, kale and bell peppers and they love it all. Iíve tried a small carrot and they are very unsure of it

    Red or green leaf lettuces are good.
