Thank you all for you help and advice, Dorcas gave birth to 12 piglets on sun night in two hours! All are healthy bar one little runt who is struggling a bit, doesnt seem to want to suckle or swallow syringe foods, not looking good, but fingers crossed, he (we think he is a he anyway) has been named Fred!
Just waiting for Doris to pop now, she is nesting so wont be long!!
Many thanks from all of us!

    Should name him Un-f-r-ed. Baby bottle may work better, with a rudder nibble on it. You can buy a half size bottle. I hope your runt got enough colostrum in the first 12 hours, to give him a better fighting chance. Good luck with Doris!
