My litter of hoglets is about five weeks old and they are all beginning to go through their first bout of quilling. I have noticed that all three females seem to be eating their solid food (royal canin). However, I don't think my male is eating it. He also has had green, almost slimy/solid looking poop over the last three days. Tonight when I got them out for their playtime, I noticed that the male's poop has turned into a black color when he goes. When I do the toilet paper smashing test, it's a sticky greenish color. Is this as life threatening as I have been reading, or could it be tied to the age and the fact that he is getting handled by strangers and is also going through quilling? (the rest of the hoglets have, on average, solid black/brown poop)
