How Much? How much hay should a pig eat everyday?

Just wondering..
 
I bought 15 pounds a month when I only had two pigs. I was a bit geneorus with laying it out during floortime, which resulted in wasted hay from being peed on.

They should be eating lots of hay through the day. I'm sure the exact amount varies per pig. So keep those bins nice and full!
 
Every cavy most likely eats different amount of hay everyday. Just make sure that they never run out of hay.
 
Just as an example, my two pigs go through 5-7 pounds of hay per month, and they have hay all the time.
 
My 3 girls go through a 40 oz bag every week
 
I buy 120lbs (2 large bales) of hay every year for my 4 guinea pigs!
