Pig pen is done!
Yesterday afternoon and evening we worked on the pig pen. It was the first day that was dry enough to get out and work without sinking into the ground (we got over an inch of rain Wed-Sun of last week). We were almost done when we ran out of daylight. This we finished it up and moved the pigs into it. It was the first time they had ever been outside or on the ground, but it did not take them long to figure it all out.
One of the roosters came to check them out first, then he called to the hens who came and greeted the pigs. The dogs are not sure of what is going on yet, and the cows are jealous of the grain the pigs are getting...
The girls are having fun playing with them, and we will be adding pigs to our animal notebooks next week and learning more about them.
