    I believe it's just piglet pellets I think when we fed our we got it from tractor supply.

    Thanks for the response! My local tractor supply only stocks the 15% grower/finisher pig feed but DH contacted a couple of feed mills in the area and found a pig starter that was (I think) 18% protein.

    The piglets are doing great! Growing fast and healthy.

    So glad they are healthy! Hand rearing piglets can be hit or miss but it looks like you are doing great.
