Dear Lynn,
I am so happy to hear that Eve no longer has pain when she poops.  Your 
story about Callie and Eve's hay set up was very entertaining. Such 
lucky piggys to have so much choice. You have nothing to worry about. 
They are getting plenty of hay. Piggy are creatures of habit and they 
follow the leader. It appears that they prefer to eat their hay when it 
is in a pile at the end of their pen. I have two water bottles in a pen 
with 5 girls. They all drink out of the water bottle that the alpha 
piggy drinks from. They only use the other water bottle when they don't 
feel like walking to the other end of the pen. They do the same thing 
with their food bowls. They all eat out of the food bowl that the alpha 
female eats out of. I even did an experiment where I gave them a 2 
compartment food bowl. Again, all 5 of them try to eat out of the right 
compartment at the same time even though the left compartment has the 
same food it it. It is only when there is no food left in one 
compartment that they will start to eat out of the next compartment. 
Everyone gets plenty of food to eat.

I hope you are getting stronger everyday.
I volunteer as a consulting rodentologist to Drs. Danielson and Saleh
