hi
i have been luck  with my three sows and all of them have had littlers  theres about a week between all the littlers  the eldist is  5 weeks monday
could i start weaning them off now as they are eating her food as well now  i know the normal is about 8 weeks old i dont mind if they stay with her its  they are getting very big  for there age  i have to start tagging them soon once i have weaned them off as ill worm them then as well
would any one be intrested in buying a few  when  they are ready they are tamworth duroc x  beautiful pigs  i have a few ranging over differnt ages so they would be ready at different times all in all i have got 22 piglets

Ideally dont start to wean until at least 6 weeks old.  The piglets will  benefit from the extra time with mum.
