Re: Sow's milk appears to be drying up

The piglets should be sharing hard feed with their mother by 10 - 14 days. A big litter like this can be weaned at 6 weeks as they will really take their toll on the sow, but I wouldn't wean any earlier

Re: Boar Piglets Te Whangi/Awakino lines

having bred kunes for 14 years i find it hard to believe anyone has ever had a 7 week old kune weighing 22 kgs or 17kgs! i would think your piglet weights are spot on

Re: Help with my 2 x sows

Hi Lorraine, it is the introduction of the boar that is the problem - they know he's there and they are hormonal. keep them apart when one is in season but they should be fine when not in season. I run courses on keeping kunes and a dedicated breeding course. my website is www.bartonhill.co.uk i hav...

Re: my kunekune killed and ate a chicken,any experience of t

Very sorry to hear about the loss of your sow and well done for keeping all the litter well. my first thought was that the rabbit may have been poisoned - my father lost a dog once which had eaten a rabbit which died of paraquat poisoning, however, i am inclined to think the rabbit was coincidence a...

There was an article on this in a past ne...
