    My piggies diet

    The veg are all a-okay but is 12 grapes, 1 orange slice and half an apple okay for the whole week or is that too much fruit? (Please note that the grapes are spread out into 4s during the week)

    How many pigs are you feeding that much fruit to? Is that the fruit for one pig? My pigs rarely get fruit at all, so that looks like a huge amount to me.

    That is a bit too much fruit. One-two grapes per pig per week is plenty and you can cut the grapes in half to make them seem like they are getting more. 1/2 an apple is a bit too much. Maybe you could cut down to 1/4 of an apple and split that three ways. One orange slice each per week is ok but fruits shouldn't be fed more than a couple times per week so if you alternate those three around it would be better.
