I know there called "pigs" but one one of the websites I was reading said 2 to 6 oz each a day of pelts and all the veggies they want. I though at first oh thats not too much and then I got my diet food scale out to see how much it was in my cup i scop the food out and its ALOT!
How much do you feed yours? Do you all measure at all?
HELP!

All the hay they want.
Pellets -- as long as they're the right kind of pellets, I don't think it's an issue.
Veggies -- There are limits, like 1 carrot per day, 1 small slice of banana per day... more veggies are better but feed a variety as you don't want to go over the limits.

Give unlimited pellets, just figure out how much they're eating in a day and put that out. Replenish as needed.

Hay--unlimited amounts of timmy hay as well, occasional alfalfa for young ones (under 6 months).

Veggies--about a cup of veggies a day is great!
