OMG we have PIGS!!!

default OMG we have PIGS!!!

After wanting pigs for over 30 years, I finally got some

Three freshly castrated 8 week old piggies now live at the 4H grounds. I wish they could live at home with us but city ordinances forbid Evil or Very Mad so its a trip a day to visit the piggies.

Oh yeh, two are Yorkshire/Hampshire crosses and the other one is a Hampshire. The first two are pink with blue butts and the other is shiny black with one white leg and shoulder.

So far they are doing well on their new diet of leftovers and each nights compost bucket boiled up together and mixed with their grain.

Pigs are sooooo fun!

How often Billy? I dont know if or when they were done.

Should young pigs always look sleek and fat or do they look good one day, a bit bony the next and better the day after and sleek and good and then a bit bony?

And how does one teach them to eat new foods??? I dug them some cat briar roots (picture large crunchy knobbly white root) but they didn't want to know Rolling Eyes I will cut the next batch up and cook them with the rest of their food but it would be nice if they ate some things raw.

Oh yeh, and how do I know if I am over feeding them?
