OK, so I contacted our local Humane Society yesterday saying that we are always available for adopting chickens, ducks, goats, or pigs. We only have chickens, but are interested in all four animal groups. Today I get an email saying that they have one pot belly pig who needs adopting. He is neutered, 1.5 years old, approx 20-25 lbs and is very friendly, even with other pigs. Sounds great. Now I just have to convince hubby!!!!! He wanted to get pigs in the spring, but this guy is only $20 and needs a home! We have a home, I'll say! I've done my research on food and shelter. Just wondering though, we were supposed to go away for the weekend, and now I'm a little worried. I'm ok with staying home, and I'm sure DH will be to. I'm just thinking, where will we put him TONIGHT?!?! DH won't have time to get his pen ready (the extra coop we have is full of old windows and doors). I don't know what to do!?!?! I could keep him in the basement, but I don't want him making a huge mess and get into things. DH keeps everything down there, as its an unusable space. Could I possibly put a dog house in the chicken run (fully fenced in with roof) and close up the chicken door to the coop till DH gets home tomorrow? I would put old blankets and straw in there to keep him warm, its not supposed to get too cold here tonight (-5). I could pick up his food also on the way to check him out. SO thats not an issue. ANYWAYS, tell me what you think about the dog house in the run for one night. THANKS!!!!
