12 piglets, two weeks old now! Susie Q is a great mother. It got really cold, 0 F, but she kept her piglets warm enough with her body heat and plenty of straw and hay.
She had started with 16, and lost 4 within the first 48 hours, which is the most dangerous time, but since then they have really thrived. In these photos, taken today, its 25 F and the piglets have spent the past hour outside in the sun.
In the photo you can see I closed off the window and I shut the barn doors at night to prevent a cold draft on the piglets, but I open it during the day. The piglets are old enough, and its finally starting to warm up enough, I plan on leaving the barn doors open at night now.
