    I have seen it in the past and the piglets eventually grow out of it, and will stay healthy as long as they have recieved enough of their mothers colostrum. A pig like this I would give extra TLC to, to ensure it recieves colostrum in the first 12 hours after birth, unless it is evidence it it already suckling well.

    will it compete with it s litter mates or does it have to be seperated out intoo a weaker mob?
