Hi all,

I think it would be a great idea if we could all list what fruits and veggies our piggies like best. It would give people ideas on what other fruit/veggies they can give their pigs, and/or what might they might enjoy!
:)

I'll go first:
Veggies: nothing beats good ole' green leaf! They also love their carrots
fruits: oranges. Its a great thing to help cool them down too. :)

who's next?

--looking forward to getting some good ideas!
:)

veggies: romaine, cilantro, mixed spring greens, bell peppers (esp. red, won't touch green), radish leaves, celery leaves, carrot leaves, baby carrots
fruits: nibbles on apple slices and oranges, but he seems to prefer his veggies. Maybe we'll try a few other fruits now that summer is here, and they're going to be cheaper.

Both mine like: Romaine lettuce, red, yellow and orange peppers (not green), parsley, cucumber and carrots. They're not too fussed about fruit, occasionally clementines. Bonnie likes a raisin or two now and then, whilst Bracken cannot stand them.

Veggies- romaine first and foremost, cucumber, carrots, bell peppers (all colors), cilantro

Fruit- APPLES! and bananas. I let them have canteloupe rind and they did pretty good at cleaning off the orange part, so I guess canteloupe too.

Dislikes- tomato, oranges, celery, parsley

How about what they don't like. That list is shorter--mustard greens. Seriously, so far that is the only thing they won't eat.

They devour escarole, green peppers (babies anyhow--mom and other female wouldn't eat them), romaine, red/green leaf, cilantra, parsley. I gave them dandelion greens today for the first time and they couldn't get enough. They also like tomatoes (have to clean out the seeds), collard greens, kale, radiccio, and spinach.

For fruits, they love watermelon, pineapple and grapes. They will eat blueberries, apple, kiwi, mango. But the will NOT eat strawberries.

Veggies: Carrots (of course), broccoli, dandelion (I give them the whole thing flowers and all) and spinach.

Fruit: Apples, pears, strawberries, blueberries, mangos and craisins (dried cranberries).

I recently tried radishes and they seemed to like them, I am going to try papaya very soon!

if you are talking about those craisens you by at the store don't feed them to much they add a lot of sugar.
