    Re: Today my pig had

    Holy Guacamole, what a plate of veggies! I don't give mine nearly as much. I found out that neither of the piggies likes the little tomatoes, thought they will eat the big salad ones.
    I will be going to the store today to see what other greens I can find to feed.

    So you can give multiple greens to your piggies at the same time. I always thought that it was unhealthy for them to do that.

    Re: Today my pig had

    The general guide is 1 cup of veggies per pig per day. Some are not recommended for daily feeding due to sugar, calcium, etc but you can certainly give more than one thing a day. There is a great nutritional chart here on the forums, not sure how to link to it from my phone though, sorry.

    Re: Today my pig had

    They eat about 1000g of a mix like that daily.
    I know it sounds a lot, but I tried a lot of different kinds of feeding and this was the best one for my pigs

    Today my pig had

    Ferb had baby spinach today, it's not something I usually buy so he rarely gets it. He was excited! (He had other veggies too, spring mix lettuce, green pepper, 1/2 cherry tomato, endive and cilantro).

    Re: Today my pig had

    Mine had a small slice (about pinky size) of yellow pepper today, a few pinky size slices of green pepper, a romain lettuce leaf, 4 cherry tomatoes, about 1/8th of a cucumber to share and cilantro (they are still working on it so I won't be feeding them their night time veggies tonight )

    Going to the store tonight to replenish the veggie stock though Going to introduce them to red peppers, anyone feed theirs strawberries?? It says they can have them almost daily on the food list so I was wondering if that would be too often since they're sweet? My boys haven't had any fruits yet, though occasionally I'll give them a yogurt drop thats fortified with vitamin c (it hasn't affected their digestion yet and they both love them!), unlimited timothy hay and alfalfa pellets daily

    I haven't decided yet, but it will probably be radicchio and a mix of green and yellow peppers.

    This morning Dora and Olivia had radicchio with a mix of yellow and green peppers and while I was getting it ready, they had a few blades of wheatgrass as an appetizer.

    Re: Today my pig had

    Yesterday my boys had their usuals, plus some spring mix lettuce, a cherry tomato each and some green pepper (which I almost forgot to give them)

    So far today they've had their lettuce and a bit of apple, because they are begging brats and I haven't had an apple to myself since I brought Carlton home.
