I hear that a lot of people use littler boxes for their pigs, mine however usually just go in their hidey huts and sleep in it... getting all smelly and nasty. How can I encourage the piggies to use a designated litter area instead of going where ever it falls..?
 
well..(broken link removed) ...
it is hard or even in some cases it is impossible to potty train piggies..
but you can try keeping some poop can urine in one corner or in a bag...
it should help your piggies with the potty training^^
hope i help you~
 
You can't litter train them, all you can do is take advantage of any tendency they have to go in the same spot. Litter boxes under their hay racks (they need to be large enough that their whole butt fits in it while they're eating) catch a lot of stuff. Most pigs like a dark corner to potty in -- you can try putting litter boxes there and draping a little fleece or something in front to give them some privacy. Put fleece pads under their hideys and change them every day or so.

By creating those small places that are easy to change, you can go a long way toward keeping the rest of the cage clean.
