These are Elizabeths piglets. They are now over 6 weeks old and have been moved away from the farmyard. There are two mothers with their offspring in the enclosure, each has their own corrugated cover. However they have chosen to go into the same hut and are sharing the feeding of the piglets. This is quite common and can be beneficial. For example, if one pig has a very big litter and another pig a small one it puts less strain on the pig with the big litter. Picture taken May 2007 at Oak House Farm, Suffolk.
