    Just starting. Here's the first one. Looks... Piggy? She's delivered 2 so far and both seem OK. Gonna be a long night.

    Color's a little odd because red heat lamp and camera flash make it odd.

    So first litter for us and our piggle, 2 piglets. Placenta delivered as well so we're pretty sure she's done, no complications.

    Some pics. The one with the black leg is a female, the other is a male. ~8 hours old when pics were taken. 20180724_073050.jpg 20180724_073013.jpg 20180724_073010.jpg 20180724_072955.jpg 20180724_072928.jpg

    Not many people understand the compliment "Cuter than a newborn speckled piglet" but I bet YOU understand it!

    Turns out both are boys. We named them Alexander HAMilton and Piggy Smalls. Their new owners can call them whatever, I suppose. :)
