    my piglet is a female she is also with two other boys so there's a good chance should could be pregnant but she is also about 4 months old so there's no way she could be having babies soon.. well if it is suppose to take 3 m 3w and 3d... pls let me know if you know why this discharge is coming out and if it is normal or if I should be concerned...[​IMG]

    My family owns a pig farm and she is most likely not pregnant. The boys might be breeding her. My mom said it looks like semen coming out , she is awful young to be bred. I would separate them. Just my opinion.

    @flufssilkies yes I agree I don't want her to be pregnant; however when she's separated from them (we've tried this a few times) then she won't eat, or she will even escape by breaking or finding ways out, she just doesn't act like herself so I decided to just let her out with them.. I figured she couldn't be pregnant if she was this young.. again I'm very new at this... do you think I should still keep her separated? can't afford another (girl) friend for her at the moment

    If you don't want her pregnant, you're going to have to make some management decisions. Separate her or she's going to get pregnant. If your males are the same age, they're probably too old to be easily castrated. What are the long term plans for the pigs?

    It's late in the game, but if the pigs are for eating, the boars need to be castrated. I agree with fluffsilkies Mom - she's just been bred.
