I'm not so sure that I like this being a dad again malarkey! Milly the GOS is lying stretched out in her sty and the contractions have started.

mid piggery is a noble way to use a few hours,trotters crossed it is easy for both of you.

ps find a spot for your sandwich that she cant reach

pps my technique can involve never assuming a "quiet one"is not going to make it ,suck on snout,spit,gently blow has had an almost miraculous effect on some very unpromising piglets(although i have had a couple of odd looks while performing the procedure sitting a puddle of every fluid a pig can produce )

She did everything on her own last time, so fingers crossed she does the same again.
I suppose if you've kissed a few ugly pigs in your time, its bound to hold you in good stead for a spot of pig midwifery. I'm not speaking from experience mind.

She had 12 live piglets between five and seven last night and all of them were doing fine by the time the Bodger household retired to bed last night. Touch wood for what this morning brings, I'll be going out to them in a short while. There was one that was still born.

We've ended up with eleven nice healthy piglets. We've lost two. One was definitely still born and the second one was either squashed or still born too.

I'm well pleased.
