Well, a mixed week this week. We had excellent gains from the girls mansion - with Ginger taking the prize for the biggest gain at 125g. Her belly is just ballooning already! And all the newest girls are packing on the weight too.

I'm a little concerned about the almost across-the-board losses for my other cages. They're all situated in a different part of our yard, so I'm wondering if something is going on at that location that's causing them some stress? We'll have to keep an eye on these pigs over the next week or so I think. Malakai's loss is especially odd as he had been consistently packing on the weight over the last few months. This is a recent shot of him - he's not as fluffy as he was a few weeks ago (before Peppa moved in and gave him a bit of a chew!) - but he's still a gorgeous little man. It may be as simple as a local cat prowling the area and spooking the pigs, or it might just be a case of my not giving them enough food!? We'll increase the portions this week and see if anything changes!
