I heard a bunch of squealing today from the weaner pigs.  We keep a couple of pens of them by the front gate that are for sale, to make it easier for folks to pick out their pigs.  There's probably 20-25 weaned pigs in this pen.  One of the sows that had recently weaned her litter had wandered by and was teasing the piglets.  They were jumping on top of each other trying to get closer to her, and squealing. 

She wasn't impressed; after a few snorts, she wandered off, and the piglets went back to piglet activities, which mostly revolve around either eating, sleeping or establishing the pig pecking order, which is very important when you're a little pig.
