Mangalitsa Piglets

Joy made a wonderful next up in the wooded area of her pen. She had six healthy and feisty piglets last Wednesday.


They were only hours old when these pictures were taken.  They were all alert and sticking close to Joy.
Joy is a good other refused to leave them to even eat. I made sure to bring her food and water up by where her next was located.


We have tried farrowing huts or pens but have found the piglets and sows do better if they are left alone for the first week or so.
