    Re: Today my pig had

    How old is Chock maddy? Only asking because if he's over 6 months, he shouldn't be having alfalfa, and I can't remember if you mentioned how old he is

    Re: Today my pig had

    Okay, let me start off with saying wow. Now that that's out of the way, how can I convince my parents to get my pigs more than just green bell pepper, romaine, and the occasional carrot/cucumber? I am COMPLETELY willing to buy the produce myself, but I dont think my parents will take that. I would like to switch to green/red leaf lettuce, because my little ones are growing up and I don't want to have to deal with bladder stones. Are baby tomatoes able to be given daily? My pigs only get two meals a day, since I'm gone half the day at school and both of my parents work until at least when I get home. Sorry if I hijacked the thread, just a quick answer will be fine I think this thread is a great idea!

    That sucks that your parents won't let you buy produce if it's your money. Maybe stress the importance of a balanced nutrition? Saying it will save on vet costs later if they get enough nutrients by having different veggies?

    Re: Today my pig had

    Okay, just talked to my mom. She said that I could get some, she just didn't want to get so much that it spoiled before they can eat it. I think I might not have to pay for it, but i dont really know or care too much, so it's ok.

My boyfriend has frozen strawberries and blueberries, but I read to only give fruit like once or twice a week.
    So looks like I'm going to the grocery store tomorrow to find some bell peppers and cilantro. Any tips on what might be good to add to get her enough Vitamin C apart from the bell peppers?

    Your piggys shouldn't be given frozen veggies or fruit. They lose most of their nutrients in the freezing process. The best is fresh only

    Thanks for letting me know that. I didn't know. Guess I should pass that info on to my bf so he gets fresh stuff, and in turn piggy will too, heehee.

    Yeah, I worry about veggies spoiling too, since I only have the one piggy. Today she had her first red pepper—not the spicy one, . She loved it! She also had some romaine, a seedless grape, and a mini carrot. I bought her a deluxe salad mix with three different lettuces, so will feed her that tomorrow, along with a yellow pepper, the mini carrot, and a cherry tomato.

    Re: Today my pig had

    Today chock has had a bowl of mixed letis leves, 2 slices of carrot and a bit of rocket. He loves rocket, and his usuals topped up. For people who dont know, rocket is a peppery type of letis available here n the u k. May be called something else n the rest of the world, not sure though.

    Re: Today my pig had

    peekaboo's breakfast: romaine, bit of orange, celery, coriander, winter squash dinner: coriander, celery, romaine, cucumber and a bit of kale. I give her 5 grams of each veg (25 grams total per meal) I was wondering if I'm feeding her too much..... I read this formula somewhere online (5grams each of 5 different veggies/ fruit from each of these groups 1 high calcium, 2 med-high calcium and 2 low calcium) I know she's supposed to get about one cup of veggies a day. she's getting 50 grams.... and a cup of lettuce weighs 80 grams..... but 1 cup of celery is 225 grams (btw - I'd never feed her 1 cup of celery) I'm a little confused.

    This is a great thread!

    My boys had a cup of veggies (mix of green leaf lettuce, 1/4 red pepper, two little broccoli heads, and a handful of cilantro). They had pellets and unlimited hay, then a treat of mango rind (with a little fruit left) as dessert tonight.

    Re: Today my pig had

    Today my girls are going to have baby gem lettuce, yellow pepper, and a little bit of dill And their usuals of course.

    @maddy harper make sure to be sparing with the spinach, it's not safe to feed too regularly.

    Re: Today my pig had

    Yesterday the kids had more than usual, I tend to spoil them a little on Saturdays. They had green leaf lettuce, carrot, cucumber, green bell pepper, celery leaves, and cherry tomato.

    Today they got green leaf lettuce for breakfast. Later today they will have green bell pepper and a little fresh grass. Today is also vitamin c tablet day. I give them each on Sunday for a little treat. They love them.

    Of course they ALWAYS have hay and pellets available.
