Ive got my first weaners
« on: May 17, 2010, 08:20:21 pm »
 ;D and a mixed bunch they are too!

5 gilts and 1 boar. I have 2 wild boar x lops, 2 lops cross GOS and 2 tamworth cross GOS.

The boar gets bullied at feed times so I have to feed in 2 separate places so at least he gets some, he's not as greedy as the gilts either but much lazier and sleeps in the sun longer.

The pigs are churning up the nettles like good 'uns so Ill have a nice clear area for my veg growing :)

I'm going to see Smiffys stock next week to pick some pedigree babies for future breeding. Plus some turkey poults.
