Polly farrowed early this morning, sometime right before chores. She had nine piglets!
Dan discovered them when he went out to feed the pigs. I hurried to finish my goat chores and got there as Polly delivered the placenta.
A typical American Guinea Hog litter is six to ten. Last time she had six, so we're increasing production!
I fed her treats, praised her, and gave her a good back rub, but didn't check sexes of the new babies. There will be time for that later. Just happy that all went well and is well.
And, because I can't resist, here are a couple of non-piglets.
Daphne's little guys are now one day old and getting the jumping bean feet. Their baby goat sweaters fit well, except I think for Kinders they don't need to be so long. I'll have a full blown fashion show soon.
