    Hi, I have 2- 2 1/2 month old Yorkshire feeder pigs. Daisy and Marigold are still pretty shy. Any suggestions on treats they would like so I can make them a little more tame? I have tried apples, carrots, strawberries, and steak. They couldn't care less! I know it will take time for them to trust me, but a little yummy encouragement would make it happen faster. They are on pasture so they seem to be happy rooting and eating the stuff they find. They haven't even eaten their feed, only the cracked corn I give them once a day. They are "grazers" as far as eating a little and them rooting and then eating a little more etc.... Since I'm new at this, is it also normal for them to be sleeping a lot? Maybe because they are still fairly young? Thanks for any suggestions.
