Post Favourite piggy treats
We like to give our piggies treats (and belly rubs).

Watermelon is a favourite :lol:

I read a blog where they fed their pigs yoghurt that they'd buy in bulk from a local manufacturer. Apparently this particular part of the yoghurt couldn't be sold to the public so it must have been similar to whey or something. I also believe whey from cheesemaking is popular.

You know I was only just wondering about that before. Our chooks do tend to get out into the paddocks a lot and I was wondering if the pigs and chooks could co-exist. It seems my question has been answered lol!
