As promised here are the photos of our piglets!!!
Miss Piggy gave birth to eleven piglets in total. Sadly one was not alive when we arrived – it looks as though it may have died from being squashed. Unfortunately this is the reality of raising pigs. She squashed a couple more while we were there however luckily we were able to rescue them. They seem to have recovered okay however it was awful at the time! We think we may have arrived almost straight after she had given birth so she was still getting her head around things (understandably – can you imagine the first time you gave birth, that it was to eleven babies?). She has since really settled into being a mother and is a lot more careful (although Kel said she trod on one of the piglets feet and it squealed no end!)
So there you have it. We’ll be sure to post regular updates as they grow so fast!
