I put a deposit down on 2 piglets (pot bellies) last week. They were born last weekend. I didn't pick out specific ones, but will get my pick when I pick them up. They are so cute and the parents are the size of beagles. They are kept in a run in barn and until the babies were born were free to roam in a huge pasture. Anyway I went to see them this weekend and three are missing. The owner thinks it might be feral cats or foxes getting them. We searched everywhere for them. I even looked in places where they might be laying dead, but nothing. I can pick them up anytime I want. I wanted to leave them on their mothers until they were 8 weeks old because that is what is best for the piglets. But now I'm worried that the predators will keep coming back and getting more. The owner reworked the fence and gates some, but if it is feral cats or fox or even raccons, they will still be able to get to them. I read that under 3 weeks their chance of survival away from mom is 50%. I have had pots of my own for many years. I still have 3 very old pots. And even had a litter in the past. So I am experienced in feeding and such. And I bought a dairy goat in milk so I have fresh goat milk. I just don't like the idea of taking them from mom so young. What would you do? Leave them with mom and risk another predator invasion, or bring them home and raise them? I would appreciate any advice.
