2 lovely registered Gilts. Free to good home!

Really sad to have to look for a new home for my 2 lovely gilts. I was hoping to breed from them this year but unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, I'm having to try and re-home them instead. They are both registered, Glynderi Awakino I and Glynderi Awakino III (parents sire- Hafren Ru III...

Me too, I went down today to discover the battery needs charging and the fence wasn't on, but the pigs still kept a safe distance!

Electric Fencing

Finally got my electric fence set up over the weekend so looking forward to getting some grass back for summer! One of my gilts started to approach it straight away, but after a quick zap on the nose I doubt she'll be doing that again, she ran away from it and just stood there for a while. I think s...

Piri Piri

I've got 2 gilts, one with piri piri and one without. My question is.....is it pure chance whether they have these or not? If I breed from the one with no piri piri am I more likely to have piglets also with none? Should I ideally be breeding breeding from the one with?

Any reason why you use rope and not tape? Found a pack on ebay that seems to have everything I'd need but it's using green tape, is this no good? The item is here.... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ELECTRIC-FENCING-STARTER-KIT-4FT-GREEN-FENCE-POSTS-/310300000062?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item483f523f3e will...

Yep, the whole area is fenced off already so the electric fence will act as a divider more than anything to keep my two gilts off the recovering piece of land, I'm hoping we have some decent weather and the grass comes through nice and quick!! I absolutely can't wait until I have a litter, but at th...

Yep, I thought that might be the reply. I'm not too worried about them getting a little shock as like you said, they'll learn really quickly not to bother going near it again and being able to move it with little fuss is a huge bonus. What's the deal with piglets and electric fence? I don't have any...

With regards to dividing off the land to allow it to recover, does anyone have any suggestions other than electric fence, or it that the best option? I'm just about to divide the area my pigs are in, in half so literally just need to go straight across.

That's terrible! When I got my pigs I was resigned to the fact that they would more than likely root, I can't imagine getting rid of a piglet for this reason, let alone replacing it with another pig that will quite possibly do the same.
