Our potbelly pig is pregnant and we thought we had her due date right. That was the 7th lol so I’m pretty sure we are off a little. I was able to squeeze one of her back boobs and a drop of milk came out. She’s nesting but no big signs of farrowing. Just wondering what you all think. Her teats are warm to the touch. We have her in a pen and have a farrowing box ready with a heat lamp. We can’t really see her belly, it’s on the ground, so can’t really see a milk line.
