Katie’s Kunekune Piglets

Katie is a member of the farmingfriends forum and a reader of the farmingfriends website.

Katie contacted me back in August and introduced me to her Kunekune pigs, Coleen, Wayne and Mable. Katie was unsure if Coleen was pregnant and it later turned out that she hadn’t been but she did finally get served by Wayne and on Saturday she finally farrowed and gave birth to nine healthy piglets. 4 brown 5 white with black spots. She farrowed in the early hours of the morning and delivered the piglets and cleaned them up all by herself.

Katie is delighted and very proud. She has sent me these photos of the beautiful piglets.

Thanks Katie for sharing these photos with us. Your piglets are beautiful and as a pig keeper and enthusiast myself it is very interesting to see how the kunekune piglets differ to my saddleback piglets.

A useful book for a new pig keeper and breeder is the book Starting With Pigs by Andy Case.
