All from one litter, Duroc and wild boar mix. You can definitely pick out the runts, and the girl in the middle staring at me, is in charge! Friendly, but she'll give you a tongue lashing.
They're in love with their new digs. We sectioned off an area of the garden, so they can rut it up and fertilize it for us, etc. They're about 16 weeks old. Doesn't seem possible does it? and they were not fed well in my humble opinion. Previous owner only fed them whole corn, and had them on their momma up until a couple of days ago. Pigs do not digest whole corn very well, and it doesn't begin to give them the amount of protein they need.
The Moose was telling me, the momma was very skinny. How may I ask was she to keep on weight when she was only fed whole corn and still fed this brood of 7 for so long? I'm no hog expert, but that just doesn't sound right. They've come to the right place. They'll be fat and sassy in no time!
Funny how they just know; they've never been in a pasture before. Only held on a concrete pad, so how did they know that grass and weeds are yummy! How did they know to push their noses in the ground to root up bugs and roots? Animals really are amazing!
