The number of babies in the litter depends on how many times the pig has been preggy even then you could be surprised by more or less than you expect. When Belle was preggy it was her first and only litter and I was expecting only 2 maybe three and ended up with 4. You can handle the pigs right away. It is advised to take the baby boars away at 3 weeks at the earliest and no later than 4 weeks, once they hit 4 weeks they can get their mom and sisters pregnant.
Belle gave birth I believe an hour before I got up and did it all by her self and was fine. Chocolate who I worried about because I didn't know if she was preggy or if she ever had a litter because I was her third owner, delivered during the day just fine by her self and again I missed it cause I was downstairs on the computer.
