Tiny The Piglet

The Saddleback piglets are nearing 7 weeks old and are growing well. Here is Tiny the piglet who is a gilt. She was born to Cagney who had a litter of 16 piglets and only has 14 teats so some of the piglets were fighting over the teats.

Tiny, named as such due to her tiny size, didn’t seem to get much milk in the beginning so I have beenhand rearing her and she now drinks milk from a bowl four times a day. She is growing well and her milk is supplemented with pig pellets which she seems to enjoy eating.

I was able to get these close up shots of Tiny with her looking at the camera as she is used to me calling her name.
