The little pigs weigh about 40 pounds each, they had been wormed, tails docked, teeth clipped and castrated so we didn't have that to deal with, thank goodness!
We brought them home in a medium sized dog crate. They spent the night in a nice sized wooden box in the Morton building until we could get them situated in their own pen the following day.
We've had pigs a couple of times in the past and still had an old pen set up where we raised them. The pen is a bit grown up with weeds and brush but the pigs will have that cleaned up and knocked down in no time.
They took a short 4 wheeler ride out to the pen, I'm sure they are wondering what the heck is happening!
We produce a lot of eggs here at the poultry farm. There are times when some eggs are to muddy, or poop covered to hatch or eat ourselves and this will be great for the pigs. Next month we will crank up the incubators and start hatching again. We hatch chicks every Monday night and we always have some eggs that don't form and we throw away in the trash, this will be great for the pigs to clean up instead of it going into the landfill.
We no longer had a pig shelter so Larry quickly put together a pig palace. Threw them a half bail of straw and they made themselves a bed. It was fun to watch them pitch the straw around.
Snug as two pigs in a blanket.
This is just another day on the farm.
