Speaking of the 7 boars across the room, they're all doing well too.

We're in a watering ban here as well, just after I got all my flowers and beans doing so well. I put ice cream pails in the sinks and I'm catching the water when we wash our hands, wash veggies, and when we rinse dishes. That amounts to a few watering cans daily. I also mulched everything I could with dry leaves and I plant a lot in pots so I don't need as much water. So much for Land of 10,0000 lakes!
I have no idea what I'm doing here. I only have boys and know nothing about what to do. I'm giving mama extra veggies with a little bit of critical care sprinkled on them to make sure she gets enough nutrients. She's eating it so I guess that's a good sign. I know to make sure she doesn't run out of hay or water. I'm hoping that all of the little ones make it through the night until I can get them all to the vet in the morning. They'll be there as walk in so they will be there for a bit. I'll change their bedding while they're gone. I also know not to handle them any more than is absolutely necessary for the first week or so.
Lastly I know to post pictures of them as soon as possible, which I will do when my phone with the imgur app is back up and running. Here's a link I hope will work in the meantime. I can't get pictures of all the babies just yet but you can see a couple of them in these pictures.

When we had an accident years ago, we looked after mum, kept them all warm, and made sure the runt got extra feeds from mum. Thankfully all 5 survived. Ask the vet for advice! There was a reason your daughter was chosen to bring her home to you! She is very lucky and so are her little bundles of joy!
Bubs can eat solids a few hours after birth and start running around fairly quickly too! Wishing you luck!
