Okay, so lately I have been adding a few more veggies to my pigs diet and trying more things, and I think I've been feeding everything okay but wanted to make sure. Okay, so here is a sorta menu thing I typed out. They do get 2 meals a day, but I don't have an AM and a PM becuase the AM is the same as the PM from the night before. Its sorta hard to explain but I'm gonna give it a try, its not actually hard I just dont know how to word this, So where it says a day of the week, I make that salad at night with the amount of stuff I said, but they don't get the whole thing, when I am making it I seperate it onto 2 plates. One of which they get for dinner and the other is for breakfast the next morning. If that makes sense. So in all reality the amounts are only half of what I put for each meal since its seperated into 2 meals. If that doesnt make sence tell me and I'll try to re-word it or explain it differently or something.

In addition I want to add Radicchio to thier meals, but I don't think Schnucks has it, I don't remember seeing it, but they might. Anyone know if they do?

Also, they have alfafa based pellets so they need a lower calcium veggie diet...

The pellets are Mazuri 5664, and their hay is Brome that I get in full bales.

I'm pretty sure this is good, but I wanted to make sure.

Foods:
Green Leaf Lettuce--about 1 ½ to 2 cups when chopped.
Romaine Lettuce--about 1 ½ to 2 cups when chopped.
Endive--about 1 ½ to 2 cups when chopped.
Cilantro--almost a full bundle, about 1 cup, chopped in approx. 1” pieces.
Carrot--2 small or medium sized baby carrots.
Green Bell pepper--about 2” wide piece of the biggest Bell pepper I can find at the store.
Corn husks-- usually from 2 ears of corn, I’d say about 1 cup or 1 ½ - 2 cups, it really depends on how much is left on the corn when we get it.
Cucumber-- ½ inch wide piece of a small cucumber
Tomato--about 1/4th inch wide slice of a regular sized tomato.
Grapes (green & seedless)-- 3 1/2
Mustard Greens-- about ½ to ¾ of a cup when chopped.

Monday:
Greenleaf
Endive
Carrot
Bell Pepper
Tomato

Tuesday:

Cucumber

Wednesday:

Jenni, that all looks good to me! I like your method of making 2 meals in the evening, so that the morning one is easy and ready to go in the morning.
