Six Piglets


I made mention on Monday that one of the piglets looked very weak and we believed it would not survive. Today, when I brought feed for the two adults, I noticed that the piglet that had looked so sickly on Monday had been removed from the pen. Only six piglets remain out of eight.

It was three weeks ago that I first mentioned the coconut tree stump inside this new addition to the piggery. Today, I find that the pig (and piglets) are slowly eating away at the stump. I shouldn't be surprised - if a pig will eat its own feces, I suppose there's nothing it won't eat. I was surprised, however to see the piglets already drinking water from the trough. They'll be weaned before we know it.
