Very Strange Pigs
[Return to Topics]

I know this is weird, but when I enter the pig pen area, the pigs will not hardy or stop peeing unless I leave!!!!!!!!! At first I thought the one pig was partly plugged up somehow, but I found out if they do not see me, they whiz away normal.

Anyways, these pigs seem to act embarrassed like people. I know for sure I would not pee in front of anyone. Are pigs really like that or is this just plain weird.

One of our shetland ewes urinates 'bout every time I come near the pasture.

Jimbob...are your pigs on auto waterers? Or do you have water in tubs for them?

Our pigs used to unrinate when they would see us coming to fill the water tubs. Basically I got that they did not eliminate water unless they knew for sure they had some more coming. Other than that I couldn't tell you what it is.

We have water buckets- they rarely run dry, but have mabby twice in 3 months.

I re-read your post I thought you meant they would start whizzing when they saw you. Now as to why they would not go, I don't know. A boar urinates in a sporadic jerking manner anyway, and may stop for breaks in between.
