    Baby Had A Good Life

    I don't post often so don't know everyone on the forum very well, but this is the only place I could think to go to share my heartache and know everyone would understand. My little "Baby" died sometime in the early hours of this morning. He's the white one in my avatar. He fought a valiant fight...

    Congratulations! Are both babies close by so you can get in lots of snuggles?

    I have a sorta silly question:Is there a way too know if your piggy is cold?

    My piggies' hair "puffs" out when they are cold. I know that's a strange description, but they sit in one place and seem to double in size because they have their hair all puffed out to give extra insulation. It's the same thing you see birds do when they are just sitting around on a chilly...

    Bored Pigs

    My piggies get the most enjoyment out of piles of hay. They can play the most creative games peeking at each other through the hay, pushing the pile of hay around the cage, and then squashing it flat by buldozing through it. Hay seems to be the thing they play with most.

    Male Pig in Michigan

    He's just wonderful! What a handsome guy! He's lucky, too, having people who care as much as you apparently do.

    Concerned - Guinea Pigs Fighting???

    I have two male pigs who take turns with the "who is dominant now" routine. They do exactly what you have described, keep it up for most of an evening and then get back to regular behavior in the next day or so. No one seems to get hurt....just annoyed. It's probably more distressing for us...

    Foot Tag on Piggy

    One of my piggies has the occasional "spur" on his feet. He had one during a vet visit and I asked what to do about it. The vet said to clip it close to the skin....being careful not to clip the skin. It will probably grow back or may move to another part of the foot. The "spurs" or "tags"...

    Aggressive Americans?

    I have one Abby and one American and they seem to take turns being "the boss". Neither one seems more assertive than the other.

    WANTED: Boar Stories

    We had our first boar for over a year before we added the second, younger boar. They are now 2 years 6 months and 1 year 3 months. We worried about adding the second boar because we had the first one for so long by himself and we had heard the warnings that "boars will fight". We decided to...

    What brand of pellet do you feed.

    We use Kleenmamma's Timothy pellets. They are available online at kmshayloft.com. I have also used Oxbow pellets and they are excellent. But our piggies prefer Kleenmamma's pellets (her hay is the best, too).

    Interesting thing about pellets

    I feed my two piggies KMs pellets, too, and they don't eat as many as with the other brands we've used in the past. I fill their bowl once a day (sometimes it isn't quite empty) and it holds a little less than 1/2 cup. I feel KMs pellets have so much more "useful" nutrients that the piggies...

    The weather

    And......here I am sitting in the desert southwest with 12 inches of snow in the front yard.....that has melted down from the 24 inches we got a week ago. Another small storm came through last night giving us 2 new inches. The temperture is 30 degrees at mid-morning. It seems the weather trends...
