    I am going to be raising pigs and was wondering do they need their own house or can all them live together. Didn't know if they needed their own house for babies etc.

    Hi there.
    If a mother pig has piglets its best,
    To keep them separate from other pigs
    Because they may start fighting and piglets could get injured.
    If you buy a few pigs for meat or pets then they can all live together.
    Goodluck,
    Fionn.

    If the mother pig has her own stall will she take the babies in there and be OK in the same pen or completely separate her?

    I think she should have
    Her own stall away from everyone else.
    Goodluck,
    Fionn.
