Heating my pot belly pig in the winter..............

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

How do you guys give your pig heat?  My hubby seems to think we should give him a heater in his house set at a certain temperature.  I think we should do a heat lamp.  What do you do?  What is a good temp to keep his house at?  When should I start giving him heat at night?

 

Thanks so much!

How old is your PB?

 

We use LOTS of Hay and I mean  A LOT lol and a heat lamp. They lay under the hay right under the heat lamp otherwise they still like to come outside during the day. As long as you have a good shelter with no wind, that stays dry, unfrozen water, and hay your pig technically doesn't even need a heat lamp. BUT mine truly love it so I use it.
