This is Hermione today, October 7, 2009. She’s a two year old purebred Tamworth pig. I was convinced she’d have those piglets today, because it’s raining really hard and the wind is really bad. Plus, she’s been keeping herself separate from the herd, and definitely nest building. She didn’t come up for breakfast this morning and then dinner this evening, so I went to see how she was doing. She then followed me back down, after showing me her nest and getting a good scratching, so she is still eating, after all.
But then I looked at the photo from the day before she had piglets last time. What a milk line! Neither of the younger three girls got near that big before they had piglets. Hermione delivered four days past her due date last time, but we don’t have a clue when she and Albus Dumbleboar did the deed.
Any guesses as to when and how many? I’m going to say Sunday the 11th with 10 piglets. She had 6 live last time, her first.
