I'm thinking of just using the HAFF diet all over again.. Because now, my pigs hardly get any pellets as it is, and they don't complain- I only fill their bowls up every 4-5 days and they get a handful each pig- which actually is NOT a lot. It goes by in one day.. They don't seem to care if they're there or not, just something to munch on when they're bored. Should I just take out the pellets totally?

Should I try the HAFF diet again? Last time they were SO squeaky, but this time they aren't at all.. Maybe it's because I reduced their pellets slowly? Any thoughts on this?

Oh, this is totally random, but I'm so happy- Kleenmama now does hay in 45 lb boxes instead of 35lbs! Now it will last even longer..
 
I just think it's so strange that some pigs on here are dependant on pellets! If I do put them in the cage they'll take a nibble, but then go back to the readigrass or hay. Go ahead and try it - just make sure you up their diet of vegetables to make sure they are getting enough vitamin C.
 
Wish I had your pigs. My vet says that my piggies are overweight so I'm trying to limit the pellet to 1/4 cup per pig. I give them half in the am and the other half at night. You'd think they were starved the way they gobble them all down in a few minutes.
 
My piggies have pellets available but the 6 of them eat mayve 1/4 cup a day total for all 6. They mainly eat the veggies, fruits, and hay. I keep the pellets in there because I feel its better safe than sorry and I see it like taking a multivitamin for them. As long as they dont eat much of them I feel its not a problem.
 
whats the HAFF diet?
 
Hay and fresh foods diet. It's where your pigs don't get pellets, only veggies/hay/fruits.
 
I was going to put Chip and Rodney on the HAFF diet, but I talked to my mom about the pellets and she said we can start getting plain.
