What kind of food dish(es) do you use? I just have a plastic one, but the pigs enjoy flipping it & spilling the pellets everywhere!
 
I have the plastic ones too. One of my pigs (I have a herd of 10) loves to flip them over as soon as we set them down. So we have started just laying the pellets in piles on the fleece (since that's where they end up anyway lol). Maybe we will reintroduce the bowls later on to see if she will still tip them over or not.
 
I have plastic ones as well and the one flips them over all the time lol

I usually just scoop the pellets back into the bowl at their second veggie feeding in the evening and if they tip again they usually eat them off the fleece.

Eventually I might get the weighted ceramic ones so he can't flip them over and make a mess by crushing the pellets and getting them everywhere haha
 
I use ceramic ones. It's quite funny because they can't tip them over but they will grip the edges with their teeth and drag them along the fleece. One of my pigs will drag it to the outside of the pigloo so she can stay inside it and eat!
 
I have a plastic one that hangs off the side of the cage.
 
Heavy glass ashtrays work, too. You can find them really cheap at goodwill.
