    I have 2 female Kunekune piglets, about 6 weeks old. They’re too small to go in my pen with my bigger pigs. Here in Texas, we’re about to approach the 40s at night (chilly for us!). Do the piglets need a heat lamp or am I overworrying? They have an igloo with thick, dry bedding, that faces out of the wind. They are working through some “arguing” with each other during the day, but they sleep side by side. I’ve not had piggies this young at this time of year. Thanks for the input!
