The Farrowing Pen

One of my pregnant sows should be farrowing within the next few days, and my wife's papa is preparing an addition to the existing piggery to house the sow and piglets.

In the accompanying photos we see the farrowing pen built into the addition. I had had quite a few questions in my mind about the safety of the piglets and the building of this pen answers those questions.

My concern now is that the two pregnant sows will farrow too close together. I hope that the first litter can be moved by the time the 2nd sow is ready to give birth.
