    Practical question, can I over do veg and pellets? The boy keep finishing the bowl of food.. And they demand veggies like 4/5 times a day. I wasn't here yesterday and they were yelling at Michael but then I got home and they started at me even tho they'd had dinner! So they had veggies 6 times yesterday I feel like I'm over feeding them, they eat hay too

    You can over do pellets, I think the piggy forum recommend a tablespoon per pig a day? Mine get this in a morning and eat them all there and then. Veggies I'd just be worried about bladder problems if it's high calcium veggies? But if safe veg like pepper etc then I'd think ok? Mine wheek and I ignore the poor things well I stop and speak to them but say no food till tea or whatever

    Yeaaa it way more than that

    No high calcium veggies, although parsley in small amounts a few times a week. Coz I have a plant

    Mine get louder and louder if I ignore... It's really difficult

    Flippin' 'eck, if you feed them whenever they ask for it, you're in trouble. They will just ask 100 times a day. They get so used to a routine, and that includes associating the sounds of a human with bringing grub. I feed veg and pellets twice a day. You definitely want to give a very small amount of pellets.

    If they are being loud, just put a bit of hay in front of them.

    Yes, probably about that.

    They do learn a routine, so they will learn that veg and pellets come twice a day etc. But they always live in hope.
