We plan on letting our girl have piglets and she lives with her male friend. She's had 4 cycles now. Her last cycle was January 14th. We clearly saw him mount her for several days. So now, only 2 weeks later, she has visible nipples now and their getting longer. and she is pretty swollen. He's nudging her a bunch but she just lays down on her side. She's never layed down like that when he's showing her interest. 馃槀 He's tried to mount her a few times over the past couple days but she spins around and yells at him. She shouldn't be in heat just 2 weeks after her last heat and she isn't acting like she's in heat. But I also know that she shouldn't be showing physical signs of pregnancy after only 2 weeks of being bred. And her "pointy thing" is still pointed down. I'm so confused! What is going on?

We have KuneKune as well. But ours are young about 5 months old. Our boar (Slice) is already wanting to breed the 3 gilts that are also 5 months old. But otherwise they get along great. He even gets along with their bother. I've never heard on a indicator before. Been around breeding hogs for years. But not KuneKune.

The vulva or clitoral hood. People call it different things. In a lot of pigs, for gilts it points down. When bread it points up. But it's not the case for every breed or every pig even. I call it the pointy thing or the pregnancy indicator. 馃槀馃槀 this girl is a year old and she's had 4 cycles already.

I wonder if she is pregnant, and getting ready to farrow. The smell can be the same as heat, so that could explain the boar's interest.

The pop-up timer is something new to me. Would be interested in learning more.
