Thie first picture is less than 24 hours after birth. The second picture is 5 to 7 weeks later. Some of them are 7 weeks and some are 5 weeks. They are two difftent litters but not much diffrent in size. They grow so fast it is unbeliveable. The landrace took off faster than the yorkshire. I think that is the milk end of that. The landrace gave enough milk to feed both litters. The yorkshire dried up faster and weened them eairler. The yorkshire had 9 babies and 5 of them made it thru. Two dead at birth, and she sat on one and we think she sat on the other one. The landrace had 12 and lost 3 at birth. She kept all 9 of hers. She made the better mom between the two. Ruby is next. This is all of them's first litters. We will have to see how they do on the second one. They can be bred three times a year. We are only doing twice. They stay pregenate 3 months 3 weeks and 3days. When they get ready to have them their back starts to straighten out due to the muscle weight and they start to give milk. The landrace looke very uncomfortable for about 2 weeks before she had hers. The yorkshire sneaked up on us. When we got her she was only suppost to have been bred 2 weeks. 2 Weeks later we had babies. Or boar is a yorkshire. He has a good attitude. He has to be reminded by the ladies every once in a while to show manners but he is getting the picture. pig
