How long till you can tell if they are pregnant? She drinks a 32oz water bottle in 2 or 3 days which isnt normal. I cant really feel anything in her stomack either. I will post a picture tommorow. Thank you

Usually by the sixth week you can feel the babies. They are pregnant for about 10 weeks (68-72 days). Weighing her is a good way to check for weight gain which would indicate she was pregnant.

How long was she with the boar? If he is still in with her, remember to take him out before she has the babies as he will rebreed her within hours of the birth.

Feed her extra high vit C veggies (bell pepper and cilantro are good), alfalfa for calcium and be careful of parsley. Some say it causes premature labor.

Any other questions?

NO that should awnser all my questions. She was with the boar six weeks. Here are some pictures and i recentally shave the females hair to get a better look. Now that I think she should be close to 5 weeks pregnant. I cant really feel anything in her tummy though.
