There are a great deal of external conflicts involving Piggy.  Remember: anything involving Piggy and anything outside himself is considered an external conflict.  Look at the boys teasing him about his asthma.  Look at Jack denying Piggy meat at the party towards the end of the novel.  Look at the struggle between Jack's hunters to steal Piggy's glasses.  The final one is between Ralph releasing the stone at Piggy on the mountain top.  All you need to do is explain how all of these are examples of Piggy versus outside sources of conflict.  Hope this helps!
