happy piggie or mad piggie? and how much c?

Opie has been jumping and doing what looks like a bunny binky impression. Does this mean he is happy or mad?
Oh he is now starting to relax and sleep in his cage. He scared me I thought he was dead when I saw him! Poor Smores is such a scaredy cat he has not calmed down yet. They both LOVE when I hand feed them their red peppers and greens.
How much red pepper or clementines should they have a day to get the amount of vitamin c they need? They are happy to eat them for me but I want to be sure they are getting enough or not too much.

Its called "popcorning". Pigs generally do it when they are happy.

Squirrel, one of my girls, popcorns all the time! She also love to run laps around the cage. I have heard that when pigs get older, they stop popcorning as much.

www.guinealynx.info/diet.html has a good list of veggies and fruit that are good to give your pigs, plus how much of each they should/can get.

Peppers can be given everyday, but im not sure about the clementines. Im guessing since its a fruit, that once or twice a week is all.

yep Amber is right!
My piggies love to popcorn especially first thing in the morning and when they are taken outside to play in the green grass on a sunny day. They look like mini bronco ponies!
Its one of the cutest thing to see

That is what Opie was doing. I guess he is a happy pig.
