Question
i bought a very young potbelly pig and made the mistake of feeding it baby food till i could get to the feed store to buy it some pig food it will not eat the potbelly pig food not any sugestions?

Answer
Choose starter pellets if you can. If not, that's ok too, just make sure piggy gets some goat milk daily until he's about 3 month old.

Mix the pellets with slightly warm water, and let them turn into a mush like cream of wheat. Stir some of the baby food into it.

For the first few meals you might have to use a lot of baby food and just a little bit of the moist pellets. At each meal, use less baby food and more pellets.
