Re: Infertility problems

Hi Rushbury and Wendy Thanks for your replies :) I am considering trying to put her in pig again at some point, but not so sure anymore due to her teats (she has 8 and 1 blind one) so if she had more than 8 I would have to bottle feed (which I really dont want to do, last one was SUCH hard work and ...

Re: Skinny Piggie

Hi Wendy, yes I suppose this is possible, I thought about this and have separated her from the others for the last day or two as it could be the oldest is the main culprit so will have to see. Another problem is when I separate them, the gilt gets very stressed and yesterday forced her way, sideways...

Re: Need help! think 2 week old piglet is dying

Treated her with a dash of brandy! it brought her back to life and the next day she was fine, she is a very cuddly little girl now
I think due to all the human contact she had, she is looking forwards to going to a farm to live with her little sister in two weeks time :)
