A question about poo.... Sorry had to be asked!

Post by blades » Wed Feb 08, 2012 8:02 pm

We are quite new to kunes and would like to be sure we are doing things right. We have two kunes and are delighted with them.... Only thing is we are surprised at just how much these wee (3 months old) guys seem to poo. We are collecting a full bucket of poo every 2 days? They are each getting 500g (ish) each of East Coast Viners Sow Rolls per day, split into morning and evening feeds. They are on good grass and munch in between meals. Not that we are experts but the poos look very healthy to us. Probably just us as beginners looking for reassureance that we re not over feeding?

Thanks in advance

Looks like piggie heaven, even though I was expecting to see a photo of a bucket!

They certainly don't look overweight. I'd make sure the bigger one doesn't dominate and get all the pig nuts.
Just keep an eye on them, especially when the spring grass kicks in - you might need to vary the amount of nuts.
