Happy one-week birthday, little Guinea hog piglets!
They are so fat and glossy, and growing so fast. We did lose one of the females when mom accidentally sat on her in the bedding. But the rest---3 girls and 6 boys---are doing great. They look like a herd of tiny, short-nosed elephants marching around in a jungle made out of bushes.
We had quite a large waiting list of people who had inquired about buying piglets, so most of these babies are already spoken for, and I'm confident the others soon will be. In a couple of months, they'll get to go off to other farms and when they're old enough, they'll help continue to preserve this very rare and special breed of pig.
I think that our other pair of pigs, Circe and Jack, had their first successful breeding yesterday. If so, we should be expecting our next batch of piglets right after Christmas.
