I am getting a potbelly piglet soon and I don't know what I should feed him. I have had meat pigs in the past, but he (he potbelly pig) will be my pet. What should I feed him?

They make potbelly food. Any place like a tractor supply sells a few brands. I will say watch your pigs weight, the feeding guidelines are not for every single pig. I have seen more then a few people feeding exactly to the guidelines on the food they are getting with very thin or very fat pigs. You can also feed any veggie and most fruit scraps, dairy products...pigs love dairy, cracked corn or scratch grains, eggs, etc. Also if they can get to it they will eat dog or cat food so find a way to keep that out of their reach. We avoid feeding meat or meat scraps but I know many do feed cooked meat....pork seems questionable :ep
