    Bedding Besides fleece

    Some in the past 2 years mentioned using something other than fleece. I think it was velvet, that the hay and such brushed and shook off very easy. I want to stop using mini flakes but I can't stand long enough to beat the hay and such off the fleece. Does anyone remember?

    Hay I need to order hay again

    I need to order hay again and use both KMS hayloft and Small Pet Select. My last 50lb box of 3rd cut was so green and soft and fresh, it was from SPS. I just read a review on their facebook page from May saying their box of 3rd cut had dirt and a ton of brown in it, my box was from January. Has...

    Sweet wee my lovely little girl

    This morning I found our precious little Chewie gasping her last breaths. She wasn't sick, I adopted her a year ago in January, she was suppose to be young but she never gained any weight and was always bony. Her personality reminded of the old men I adopted, very sweet and laid back. She had...

    Medications CBD oil for the elderly pigs

    For elderly piggies has anyone thought of giving or actually given CBD oil to the piggies for arthritis? It has a proven tract record for humans, dogs and cats, so naturally I wondered about using it for the pigs too.

    Nails/Nail Trimming Just had the easiest time trimming nails

    Two of the piggies had poo stuck to their nails and normally I held a soaked paper towel to the nail until the poo softened to pick off but this time I put all the pigs in the tub with a inch or so of warm water and left them until it started to cool. One at a time they came out, got dried off...

    Behavior Bratty pigs

    Woke to the hay bin knocked over and a pig sleeping in it. Since then they are doing their best to knock it over again. I now have two C clamp clips on it, holding it to the side of the cage encase one wasn't closed right. Bratty pigs. Like I do not give them plenty of hay to lay in.

    Coroplast Bedding problems

    I do not use fleece any more and have no plans to change back to it anytime soon but for the past few months it seems the girls are getting more bedding on the floor. The base had 5" sides and I just bought coroplast to make a new base. I do not want to waste $40.00 for the two sheets by making...

    I am not seeing the link for the open cages, c&c cages, etc. I just see cages for other pets. If not for a photo that flashes, i couldn't get to the different c&c cages.

    Goodbye Huggle, my sweet baby

    Huggle passed away today, he was 3 1/2, he was my first pig as an adult that I got for my grandson. He was my favorite even though he has hated me since I took him in to be neutered last year. He will be joining the old men and his brother over the rainbow bridge. Chewy was laying with her head...
