    Is it safe to use cedar chips in my 4 1/2 month old pot belly pigs cage? I've heard cedar is not safe for any animals. Just want to be safe

    No, it may cause upper respiratory problems. What type of "cage" do you have him in?

    I'd put enough straw that the pig can burrow into it, and I'd stack some bales to make a "cave" for each animal to keep warm
