In the wee hours of Christmas day, about 2:15 am, the first Tamera's piglet was born.It was longer than usually labor, as two of the ten had to be turned as they were upside down and after an hour working on each, we knew she was having problems. It was close to 6:30 am before she had her last piglet. Tamera is being a careful mother, and after a week, all ten are still kicking. The creep area was opened up, and several piglets found the waterer nipple. Our cow is being dried up, so this litter will have to do without the cow's milk and whey, which they love.
