Wilberta

     Since the last time I posted, we have been busy. Bacon accidentally stepped on two of her babies. One piglet had her foot stepped on, so we sprayed iodine on it and put her back. The other one was much worse. The skin on almost his whole side was ripped off and hanging there. It turned out that me and my daddy sewed him up. Now he has a lot of stitches! Since it's October, we named him Frankenpiggy, or Frank for short. This morning he was doing excellent and looks as if he's gonna survive.
     The first piglet I was talking about also happened to be the runt. She was not getting any bigger and seemed to be struggling to do easy things so we took her out and now we are bottle feeding her. Her foot is not doing well (the skin is falling off the leg). We are hoping it will get better. Mom named her Wilberta after Wilbur from Charlotte's Web.

     She's a little dirty 'cause she'd just been fed.
     Our chicks are doing very well also. Their flight feathers and tail feathers are growing in.
