    Hehe, I just told my two that I was being mean to other pigs.

    How many pellets were you told to feed then? I only feed more if I have an underweight pig (or growing ones). Pellets are the main source of excess calcium in the diet.

    Just adding to this, there is a debate about how much veg to feed pigs, which is why I tend to feed more veg than I once did. The John Chitty webinar kind of supported this, because he was talking about the need for a lot more moisture in the diet, and I have still had bladder issues when following all the proper bladder diet protocols etc. But I don't know of any debate about how much dried food to feed (adults).

    My mother in laws pigs managed to train her to feed them whenever they squeaked

    They got rather round, so she started doing a very strict feeding schedule and just going for a chat and a stroke or hay the rest of the time.

    It worked eventually
