    Rudy is 7 months old. He has begun to eat his poop all the time. He gets fresh food, corn and water everyday. He plays outside in a pen with his sister during the day. At night he comes in and is in his own cage. Why does he eat his poop and how do we stop him from doing so.

    Does he have access to water and food 24/7 or just at feeding time?

    They need free choice of food and water all day long.
