What type of bedding are you using?

Has she been having any altercations with the other piggies?

Is she lethargic?

Do you give any supplements?

Fleece bedding. No altercations that I know of, at least. Not lethargic at all. No supplements; hay, veggies, and the occasional treat per the guidelines we were given.
