They were all rescues from Craigslist, with the exception of Paprika who I got from a pet store. I was expecting to have to deal with babies with Velvet and Nibbler because their previous owner had them "free for all" style in a room with no sexing or cages. Phoebe and Smudge came here in a cage that they shared with their 2 week old pups. I removed him and the girls transitioned over with my sows, but I think she had already got pregnant again soon after she had Muddy and Sapphiera. Nibbler may be my fault as I originally thought she was a he - even after doing sexing comparisons, because of her coloration and length of hair around her "parts" I would have still been questioning her gender had she not ballooned up so quickly.
I have posted my story on my blog and on my intro.
The only ones I know exact birthdates of are the 6 that were born here. I couldn't get exact birthdates for Muddy and Sapphiera out of the "Breeder". The week before Christmas is the best estimate.. so in order of who came first:
Pepper (female) we were told she was over a year old when we got her last year..
Paprika (female) She was born August of 2011. (or so we were told)
Sparkplug (male) age unknown. Adult with huge hormomes!
Velvet (female) Unknown, I would say under a year.
Nibbler (Female - thought she was male) Under 6 months.
Smudge (male - dad of phoebe's babies) - Under a year.
Phoebe (Female) under a year
Sapphiera and Muddy (Females) - about 2 1/2 months old.
Odin (Male) - Adult, probably a senior pig.
Archeron (Male) Under 6 months, about the same size as Nibbler.
Apollymi (Female) Young adult.
then the 6 babies
Velvet's litter is 2 weeks old Tomorrow.
and then the newborns.
