Fine batch of weaners this year!  
As the seller claimed, this red wattle cross  are growing like weeds!  Other than being enthusiastic youngsters at times. They are calm ,friendly and  happy piggys . And eating like, well hogs! So far, its #150 of barley & peas, plus a large dose of Diamatetious earth to keep the parasites down.

Rotational pens are greening up nicely.  Another week or so and I'll let them into the first pen.
