It would appear that the fifth piglet has died or something……..it did look very very small when I spotted it yesterday and was having trouble finding teats, so it could have died, either naturally or been killed. Maybe there was something wrong with it…who knows, maybe it’ll turn up again, but I somehow doubt it.
When I arrived at the farm today, I discovered one of the females running around outside,
the other three were busy scrapping in the house, god they are rough with each other.
They all seem to be feeding fine.
I’m leaving them alone for the rest of the day, as I want to constantly be watching them as do the dogs. The dog we are looking after has taken to entering the pig field of his own accord and I don’t trust him around the piglets, so am keeping them all away for the time being.
