This article is not intended to slander any particular breeders, but merely to bring light to breeders that claim their so-called "micro-mini" or "teacup" pigs will always stay micro-mini or teacup sized.
The size of potbellied pigs depends on genetics, the same as humans. Some humans are smaller or larger than others of the same age, etc.
We have yet to see any pigs remain teacup size and reach normal life expectancy, BUT we have seen such claimed micro-mini / teacup pigs that have grown to full-sized normal potbellied pig size or larger (150+ pounds, 18" to 24" tall).
There are many breeders that are selling pigs they claim will stay tiny, under 35 pounds or so. This is very rarely the truth. In addition, those breeders will often misinform you of proper feeding instructions for a potbellied pig in order to attempt to keep the pig tiny.
However, a underfed pig is a very unhealthy pig and can be aggressive due to being hungry all the time. In addition, there are many pigs needing homes. Why buy, when there are so many pigs that need your love first. We can help you adopt a potbellied pig that is perfect for you. Please contact us first.
