just wondering does food they eat affect their poop's colour.
i gave my pigs red capsicum for about 3 days in a row and i found that some poo are red in colour the next day. i'm sure it's not blood but i was just wondering.
 
Good question, but I don't know the answer:crazy:! I think it's only logical because they poo what they eat. I do know(now) that the red bell peppers are high in vitiam C but also high in sugar so you might want to scale back on them.
 
Some foods will affect the color of both the feces and the urine.

i know i shouldn't get them eating this too much but one of my pigs are kinda underweight (620g) and he LOVES eating red capsicum so i was thinking that i can give him a bit more to grow fat?
 
The pepper won't make him fat. You need to find out why he's underweight. Does he get unlimited access to hay?
 
make sure you feed a big variety every day, mabye they just need a change in food. i have one average guinepig called poppy, and one underweight (by a bit) guineapig called honey. honey is a bit underweight becuase her FAVOURITE thing is to run around everywhere like crazy. but she is a happy piggy :)
 
He needs a variety of veggies. It's no different than feeding an underweight child -- you'd want to give them a balanced diet, not a lot of candy just to fatten them up.
