Red Wattle Pigs

We just purchased eight red wattle pigs.

The wattles are probably some sort of vestigial structure. I'm not sure what the purpose is.

These pigs around all around 40 pounds.

Pigs on the move

The current batch of pigs is getting to big to be in the barn.

We have chute set up for herding them outside.

I shoveled out some paths for them. The ground under the snow isn't frozen so the pigs were having a good time rooting around.

The cold isn't a problem as long as they have a three sided south facing shelter that is dry and keeps the wind out.
