I'd like to restrict this thread to questions that apply to raising pigs in India.
The questions you have and products/veggies that you use will be different than the people living in India, so the advice you are given may not be helpful to them, and vice versa.
Try to see if you can get it in flats, maybe? So you can also grow that yourself, and avoid contaminants or pesticides?
Pooja, 100 kgs may not be so much, if it is split amongst a few users on this forum (provided you have space to keep it, of course). We easily go through 10 kgs a year, and would go through much more if I didn't keep such a close eye on making sure it wasn't slept on or peed on (I have to bring it from the US, so it's too valuable for that!). What company were they offering again? If you are in touch with them, and not hesitant to do business, see if they are interested in carrying Oxbow. I have a form with me for companies interested in distributing Oxbow supplies.
All the best to you and your piggies! Put up some pictures!
I'm sure that pictures of your cages would also be helpful to future piggy owners, in case they need to be creative and use supplies easily available in India.
Check out this post, Dildar1234:
The company had told me that if i order 100 kgs, then they will import any company's hay i want. If many people are interested then i can tell them to import the hay to their (other Indians) respective states rather than me sending hay to them.
Do you have those juice or smoothie places nearby you? Such as Booster Jus? They have wheatgrass flats supplied to them by growers, who usually do not use pesticides, and sell at wholesale price. They can also deliver every few days.
If you can go to one of those juice places, I'm sure they can give you the number of the supplier that they use.
It seems like the "hay bale" offered is timothy hay, if I'm not mistaken. Great! That was not there earlier. I'm not sure of the cleanliness or the quality, so if anyone orders the hay bale, please post!
However, I would not use the cages for sale. They are too small. It might be possible to contact them in regards to a custom made cage, or specific guinea pig products that are not listed.
Also should i feed my pet after every 3 hrs? And what shud i feed her @ night when every1s asleep [ even me] . Should hay be thr in excess or no everything should be limited?
Most people on here feed their pigs twice a day. I feed about a cup of veggies per pig per meal.
There should be unlimited hay available at all times. Have you found a pelleted feed? Did you order supplies from the website?
