We are so happy to see one of our home bred pigs deliver her first litter of healthy babies! Ophelia delivered seven piglets this morning completely on her own. With our hot temperatures we’ve been worried about her, but with all our checking she decided to deliver in the cool part of the day. The quick initial count is 4 boys and 3 girls, 5 with double wattles, 1 without, 1 with one wattle. Mix of colors: 2 agouti (brown/white, white/brown), 1 solid ginger, 4 ginger and blacks/tri.
UPDATE: 4 females: 2 brown/white both double wattled, 1 ginger with light black spots no wattles, 1 ginger and black tri double wattled (asymmetrical); 3 males: 1 ginger with light black spots double wattled, 1 ginger and black double wattled , 1 ginger and black tri double wattled.
We tried to be quick with her new brood as she is being protective and aware. She’s doing great for a first timer and I don’t want to interrupt her desire to take care of the piglets!
We will be offering some of sale for breeding, meet, and companions.
With our previous litter of Nora’s we will now be able to offer a limited number of breeding pairs. Contact us for details!
