Miniature piglets at Backyard to Bush’s farmyard are keeping their little trotters warm. The eight tiny piglets were born almost two weeks ago and are staying dry in their parents’ straw-filled shelter.

Neck high in soft straw, the four males and four females have spend most of the day nestled in the shelter's corner with a heat lamp on their backs to keep them cosy.

Mother 'Star' continues to venture outside in the rain, but she’s regularly back to check on her octuplets. She places her snout in the straw and immediately her piglets  leave their pocket of warmth to bound over and greet her.
