Piglets wetting in their Ark -any advise

Post by sara-thegranary » Fri Jan 27, 2012 5:37 pm

We have 3 piglets in an ark on their own - about 4 months old. They will keep wetting on their bedding - all of it - not even in one corner. We have a maturer sow and she's grown out of wetting in one corner thankfully, but with 3 of them its not very pleasant.
Does anyone have any tips please, thanks

Pigs will make an ensuite bathroom in their bedroom accomodation if the floor area is too large :(
If you make the floor area smaller by introducing bales into the Ark they will stop :D

I have to adjust the floor space in my stable depending on how many pigs I have sharing at any one time.....it's always the little ones that start breaking the rules first!! :roll:

Hope this works with immediate effect!!
Cheerio for now, Sam Jones :-)
