My 2 hogs eat like crazy, but have yet to see them shed. What's the deal with about shedding?

Thanks a lot

My babies shed every 4-6 weeks, the yearlings about every 8-10 weeks and the adults seem to take forever. I don't always see when they "go blue", but when I have caught them "in the blue", they have always shed within 10 days.
Do you have them on a deep substrate? I have my hoggies on Sani-chips which they love to burrow under. I have found sheds "deep" beneath the substrate, so perhaps they have shed and you just haven't been able to find the shed.
Good Luck,
Kare

They are on paper towels and aspen bedding.

The age of them is about 6-9 months old.

They have been eating like crazy for the past 2 months and still no sheds.
