Little Baby Sausages.. Mmmm sausage....

The Ecker pig had babies a couple weeks ago. This would be her second litter and she did great. She is a cross breed of unknown origin.

These were born the 3rd week of April. A pig's gestation period is 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days.  We saw her bred around Christmas.  The father is Rip, our Tamworth boar. 
Cute little buggers!

  1. They sure are adorable!! I love pigs! Used to show them for FFA & always had a blast.

    We plan to raise one for freezer camp next year.

    Looking into small to mid sized breeds (or mixes) locally to possibly raise & breed the following year. :-)
