I'm so excited!! Pigs & chickens! What next?
Oh my gosh I am such a dork. I didn't even realize at first that it was you. My Maui friend! lol My husband wants goats next. lol
Thanks for all the advice! Yes, Will post pics soon!How is the piglet doing? I would love to see pictures!
My mini/potbellied had six babies this morning. They are so small and cute. They pretty much hit the ground running when they are born. Eyes open. So your piglet could be a newborn.
Goats milk (fresh not canned) would be best for it. You can mix in baby cereal or oats. The piglet will need some iron. Since it was outside it might be ok with that. They get iron from snuffling around in the dirt.
They need heat for the first two weeks. If you have a housecat it might start sleeping with the piglet and keep it warm. For some reason cats love piglets. My barn cats sleep with my adult miniature pigs in the winter. Sometimes a few chickens will sleep on top of the pigs too.
Feed 4-6 times a day. Mom pig doesn't nurse all of the time like dogs and cats do. They make a soft snorting or grunting noise when they let down their milk for the piglets. The babies come running when momma grunts.
Watch out for diahrea it can kill a piglet fast. Have some probios on hand. It might be a good idea to go ahead and give it some probios because of the diet change from mom to what you are feeding. Keep a heavy bowl of water out all of the time.
Good Luck! I love my pigs!
