So as I was saying. Yesterday evening we got a knock on the door. It was our friend down the street who sold us Checkers. His pig has mastitis and was drying up. A few of her babies had died and the rest were starving. Although he had done the bottle feeding thing in the past, circumstances had it that he wouldn't be able to do it himself this time around.
Now we're the proud parents of 8 four day old piglets. We tried bottle feeding them, but most can't seem to figure it out. After reading online I decided to try the bowl method which is working much better.
Here are some pics of the hungry babies!
Aren't they freakin adorable! Eight piggies, crazy right?
Now that we have all these cute babies around, I think everyone should come visit on Sunday (April 3rd). Limey will be puttering about doing farm jobs but I'll be in the house to entertain visitors. Let me know if you can come by and meet the various babies.
