    I'm hoping someone can give me some information. [​IMG] We were given this pig a few weeks ago and were told she "might" be pregnant. If so, they estimated that she was due the end of May/beginning of June. As a "new pig owner" I was wondering what some of you experts thought. I appreciate the help. Thanks!

    You have a building for her to have babies in? I've used 8x8 buildings. Put a board around off wall about 8 inches away.. so she can't pin any little pigs against the wall

    Yes, we do have a building/shelter for her and will put the board around the wall.
    ( [​IMG] Acting dumb here, but... you do think she is pregnant?)

    Looks like it.. but some sows have droopy bags after litters.. so I don't know. . Since you have a time frame she's supposed to have them ..I'd treat her like she is

    Ok - Thank you! We will prepare and treat her like she is at this point. They said that if she is pregnant, she'd be due the end of May/beginning of June, so if she doesn't do anything by the middle of June, I'll assume she's not. I'll continue to watch for changes to see if her sack increases in size. Thanks for your help.
