    :bash: Well I got up this morning and my little pig was out and let my ducks out also :D It was funny but hard to get him back in,everywhere the ducks went the pig would fallow I got him back into the pin and before I could turn around he was back out under the fence :bash: My falt should have fixed before putting him back in, but it was kinda funny he went right back to the duck pin, so we took the ducks and put them in with him been there all day pig seems happy now :clap: and the ducks dont seem to mind. I took them out for the night dont trust him he might eat them :confused: not sure but dont want to take a chance.

    Glad to hear that you got him back in his pen! By the way, I have heard that some pigs do eat chickens, ducks, and other poultry. Good Luck with the little guy, see ya, bye.

    I'm glad you got the little guy back in. I'd be hesitant to have any small animal in with pigs. One of my chickens got into the pen to get some feed that had spilled...needless to say if a pig thinks he is missing out on food...all hell broke loose! Feathers everywhere, clucking, sqeeling, and such and I just had to wait until they were done with her. Needless to say she did not survive four pigs trying to get their share of whatever she had.
    To make it worse; there was feed in their pan! They just thought she had something better.

    Maybe he just wants some company and the new piglets will take care of that. Otherwise, :shrug: who knows maybe he thinks he's a duck :D

    good luck!
