    General Is this normal?

    I have 4 sow's in the same cage and they have a 32oz water bottle. They drink the entire bottle of water in 24 hrs or less. Is this normal for 4 sow's? I'm thinking they are drinking too much water. My 2 boars don't even drink an entire 8oz bottle in 24 hrs.

    Lethargy What could be wrong?

    I am worried about Princess. She just like plopped down in the cage and layed there. Diamond came and nudge her and she didn't even move. But after 5 mins she got up to eat a bit and drink and layed back down again. What could be going on with her? Could she be depressed for some reason?

    C&C Thinking about it.
