And for some reason most of the websites that have info on kune kune specifically are blocked from work (sadly the only time I have to do research is at work).
So here are my questions:
How long will a grassy area of 40x40ft sustain two kune kunes? Do I need to supplement them if they have plenty of grass?
How do you train them to electric fence? The fence I have now is rated for bears, will this be too much and/or is there a way I can turn it down (forgive me I do not know much about electric fences).
Can I keep them with my 6 goats temporarily (like until this weekend)?
Can I give them sweet feed until I can get them proper pig feed (should be this weekend)? The grass is really short in the goat pen so I'm not sure there will be enough to eat. We might mow and give them cut grass but I believe it's going to rain today so we might not be able to mow...
Is it really bad to give them any kind of meat (eggs included)? I've read that it's fine and I've read that it will make them mean, what's your experience?
Anything else that I should know?
