Photo Friday with the Piglets

Days Old

As you can see, this baby is failing to "thrive."

As you can see, this baby is failing to “thrive.”

However, we have begun introducing creep feed.  Tiny, piglet-sized supplemental nutrition. Some are catching on to it after only a couple of days. (Notice how their tiny ears have “popped” and are no longer tiny and pinned back?!)


While some prefer to scratch what itches with the feeder….


For today friends, scratch where it itches.

    Well, ain’t that somethin’ ’bout their ears. I had to go back and look at some older photographs to see the difference. They were kinda using them ears as antenna when they were younger. You keep us posted on these piglets. They are still cute. I wanna see when they turn into plain, old ugly pigs. But don’t tell Pig Farmer, ok?
