    So I recently adopted an orphan pot belly pig named Hamlet. When I got him he was on a bottle every 6 hours. We are at about 10 weeks now and he is still getting a bottle twice a day. I've been trying to wean him off of it but initially I didn't have any pig chow, so I was giving him puppy food. But now I've bought mini-pig food and treats. The problem is he still prefers the bottle to anything, wants the puppy food second, and won't touch his pig pellets. Even if I mix dog food in he just picks it out. And he doesn't like the treats at all.

    So the questions are...

    1. How do I get him off the bottle?
    2. How do I get him off the puppy food and on his pig chow?
    3. Can I give the pig treats to my Nigerian pygmy goats?
