TEN Bacon Bits!

On Tuesday, January 18th, we had to go to hospital down in southern Pennsylvania for our son's ear surgery - all is fine.  With the contrariness of farm animals, Marmalade decided to farrow that day!  

Without further ado, here are pictures of Marmalades TEN piglets! 

(Please excuse the blurriness - they kept moving.  You'll be getting a lot more photos!)

Don't you just love the mix of colors?  I haven't sexed them yet. 

It's interesting that Flower never had such big litters.  We're going to breed her one more time - to William.  I'm interested to see if the lack of fertility was due to her or Tigger.  Marmalade is Tigger and Flower's daughter and her fertility is very good, so I have to wonder.
