Keeping pigs and goats and chickens together is fine for many people but if you ever get a case of coccidia in any of them youll have to...

    Dirty pig

    The pooping and peeing in the Waller is a sign of a couple things. Firstly, she is marking it with her scent, she and other pigs commonly do this when they are coming into estrus or period.

    So a few things have happened: we have had two litters of piglets. One sow got mastitis so we put her on antibiotics and gave the piglets to a friend who could bottle feed them since I just don’t have the time right now. I hadn’t been able to find a white male for my white peahens so I almost...

    Coffee anyone ?

    sounds like you have to worm a couple of them pigs with trickery I got tips like the honey bun method or the water add in kind or the horse paste you could try. Ive found that every pig is different when it comes to worming them some won't fall for the horse paste and some will dump the water...

    Your kunes look like they got a little bit of Juliana pig in them based on their snouts& leg conformation- you have some very cute pigs. It could be allergies but more than likely this time of year its mites. Treat with ivermectin just like you would for worming treatment but for mites you gotta...

I know peacocks like to go for eyes of other birds so...
