I had a gilt Duroc that did not fair as well night before last, she lost all but one of her pigs. I hope to take her pig and place it with the Hampshire's. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

I wondered how too. I understand it is not uncommon to crush the newborn pigs.

I think they froze. It was very cold around 10 degrees and wind and her first litter. She is no longer among the living :D
