    you were only 3 days from the norm. Might not have calculated right or they were just ready to come out.

    In most species the larger the litter the earlier the birth. Not unusual.

    1 has a black head and that is as close to her color as they get.
    I have never raised pigs before, they started making little grunting noises today
    They are so cute, you just want to hold them.
