Today when I was bringing firewood in for the day I noticed that the pigs were lazing in their hut with dirty snouts. I thought that was odd because they haven’t been rooting much since their little original pig pen is a muck pit. Then I looked further out in the pen and noticed a big new section that had been rooted up. AHA! After having the pigs for almost three months they finally decided to get brave. I went and told Lee to go take a look.
We seem to have flying pigs around here when they think there are egg treats on the line. It’s actually quite funny as I had no idea big pigs could run so fast.
I’m almost finished with my stockpile of frozen eggs. We started storing eggs in the spring whenever we would have extras, as we thought it would be good protein for pigs. We are a little concerned it might affect the taste of the meat, so we’ll feed them the last of the eggs in just a few more days, and then we’ll switch to leftover pumpkin. The best pork we’ve ever had was finished on large quantities of pumpkin.
