    Do I need to moisten my piglets food? I bought them pig grower, it actually looks alot like layer pellets. I am just wondering if I should make it a little moist for them. Thanks

    I don't think you have to moisten it but mine love it sloppy so I always wet it down.

    Thanks Ozark Hen, I will try that and see if they eat a little better. I did find something to do with my broken eggs that I find. They love them!

    You are welcome. Mine ate just about anything I put in there. I fed them twice a day with this "gruel" mixture. If they left any then I waited until they finished it up. My dh cut a 55 gal. plastic barrel in half longways and secured it to a wooden frame so it would sit heavily on the ground but they still managed to lift it. they climbed inside to eat and therefore got their food very muddy. They are after all...............pigs [​IMG]
