Piggies and butternut squash

Just wondering if pigs can have butternut squash? Does anyone feed it theirs?
I buy the stuff for the tortoises but they dont eat it quick enough so half of it tends to get thrown away.

From what I read, they can have some but in moderation. Maybe a small piece once a week or so.

Jennicat may be able to answer better.

As far as I know, they're fine to give in moderation, but my pigs don't like squashes or zucchinis, so good luck!

A few of our boys love the squash and some of the others won't touch it. Same thing with the girls, some love it...others hate it!

I'm not sure, I don't have piggies. I tried giving Zeus squash once and he didn't eat it, more for me, I love squash!

And I just wanted to say, that I think someone should write a book and title it "Piggies and butternut squash"
