Babies or no babies

Post by wufpkgrl » Sun Apr 07, 2019 8:13 pm

Just wanting to get everyones option, I had 2 gilts I leant out for breeding with the promise of getting them back when I was ready (would not be until a year at the earliest) and pick of the litter. Well long story short we went and picked them up today after they have been there since November 28th. We picked them up early due to the person who had them request. We were told that she did not have a litter but we feel different and I just wanted to get your opinion.
If you click the link it should show you a photo I took of her. https://share.icloud.com/photos/06aLBFo ... ZwhO1i9YYw

Did they say that maybe she aborted the litter. That sure does look like she made milk.

No that she fooled them and they thought she was pregnant. Oh yeah she has milk I could squeeze it out. We think we got had.

To me it looks like she bagged up but it doesn't look like she nursed. Could have been pseudo pregnancy or they transfered litter to another sow.
