THE TRUTH ABOUT MICRO-MINI / TEACUP PIGS

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.

Above: Wilbur, a "miniature" pig...at just a few weeks old.......NOW.....on the right: the same pig at only 3 years old.



Above: KoKo at 8 weeks old (only 5 inches tall!).


Above: At 8 weeks old, KoKo was smaller than the toy piggy next to him. Now look at him at just 4 years old. KoKo grew to over 200 pounds. Even at 200 pounds, he was only about knee-high.


SOOOOO, even at full-grown, potbellied pigs are not nearly as large as their cousins, the farm hogs; thus the name for potbellied pigs is rightfully classified as "Miniature Potbellied Pigs."
