Twins, can you believe it? Dan went out around 2:30 a.m. but nothing was happening. When I went to check at 4:30 there was discharge and Daphne was restless. About half an hour later she started pushing. The result was two healthy little bucklings born this morning at 5:13 and 5:17. It was an easy delivery and Daphne couldn't be prouder.Nothing was required from me except helping dry them off.
Afterwards I went to check on Polly. She came running to greet me, ready for morning pets and scratches. No piglets yet, however, but I'll keep you posted.
UPDATE: Noon. A few more photos.
