no, he has never been bitten. i feed him fuzzies. i hold it with tongs and he takes it off them.

you mentioned that it had only been a couple of days... missed that at first... i would give it time as well. i have gotten some hogs that ate the same day or within a couple days of arriving. i have several others that took literally a couple weeks to start feeding.

take it slow and don't sweat it as long as they look healthy and have good weight. provide a tight hide, good temps, and fresh water. i would give it a couple days to a week without holding or messing with it to let them settle. then try sticking in a f/t in the evening and leave it over night. then go from there...
