hi from Norfolk
« on: April 29, 2010, 06:18:01 pm »
I just stumbled onto this site and i think it fits me well. I have no land of my own but i have been keeping my Chickens Geese and Norfolk Black Turkey at my father-in-laws now for some time, and me and a friend have just taken on some more land at my friends mother-in-laws, for us to keep out first pair of pigs (saddlebacks)which we pick up this weekend.This is something i have been wanting to do for many years and i hope it is just the start. Any advice anyone has i would greatly appreciate.

Hi and welcome from Australia.  We have pigs, they love wallows, food, clean water, food, belly rubs, food oh and did I mention food.  Seriously if their shelters are warm and clean, they are wormed  and they have a wallow to cool down in they are literally as happy as pigs in mud.  Some can be dominant and want to fight so it is always a good idea to introduce new pigs on the other side of a fence.  As everyone else has said read through the pig section lots of good advice.
