Please make sure you are zoned properly. Many towns and cities allow miniature pigs as pets now however, a few still do not. We do not feel like an apartment lifestyle is right for a pig and will not sell to someone who plans to live with a pig in an apartment,
Our deposits are non refundable. Once you put a deposit on a piglet we schedule to vet visit. We take your piglet off the market. The deposits are transferrable to another piglet.
Your piglet is going to mature to approx 15" high and 24" long. The sizes vary from 50 pounds up to 75 pounds, however a 75 pound pig will still be about 15" tall they are very dense. There is no such thing as a tiny pig that stays tiny. Avoid scams, if anyone is promising you a tiny sized piglet, they are trying to deceive you. We do farm visits so you can see the parents and we have many generations, genetics tells us that typically they will be the size of their parents, great grand parents, great great grand parents, after all their DNA is almost identical to humans! Food will make a pig skinny or fat, but it will not alter its DNA
You are going to need about a 4x4 area for your piglet, a soft cozy bed, water/feed bowls, a litter box with pine pellets (watered down) or pine shavings and food at the minimum. But this should all be sorted out before the piglet comes homes. They need an area so they can be left unattended when you can't be with them.
A piglet is a prey animal by nature, unlike a puppy who is a predator. Piglets must be secure in their surroundings before they feel comfortable. Plan 48 to 72 hours to bond with your piglet, hold them and feed them by hand. They will adapt quickly but until they adapt they will be scared and tempted to run.
Like all mammals, piglets are fed 1-3% of their body weight in pig pellets. This gradually increases with age, start with 1/4 cup twice a day, our adults receive about 1 cup twice a day with veggies. We feed minimal foods that are not designed for pigs, we strive to avoid obese pigs. Note, I see alot of social media groups encourage people to feed 1-3 cups twice a day as a piglet, you would not feed a human infant and adult serving, this should not be done to your piglet.
We sell healthy piglets. If you take your piglet to the vet within 3 days of purchasing your piglet and the vet feels like your piglet is unsound, we will replace him/her. If anytime during your piglets lifetime your pig has a genetic defect discovered we will replace it. You must have a licensed vet letter certifying your pigs health issues are genetic. We do not replace pigs that have become obese and suffer difficulties due to obesity. These issues are: fat blindness, arthritis, heart disease, entropian of the eye, etc
If you decide a pig is not for your lifestyle or your life changes and the pig no longer works for you. We will take the pigs back and rehome them. We do not give refunds and we do not transport. You will be responsible for transporting the pig here. Your pig will need to be up to date on hoof trims and de-worming.
Many people want to bathe their piglets right away. If your piglet has a neuter/spay site healing this needs to be avoided until its headed. Otherwise they can be bathed, we recommend a tear free baby shampoo at first.
I highly recommend this! Start young, we recommend the harness from www.Piggear.com
If you are introducing your piglet to another pig, expect their to be many battles for "top pig" its going to happen. Once they sort it out they will live in harmony. If you are introducing to other family pets, make sure your pig feels secure in his area then introduce them through the barrier. We never recommend leaving dogs and pigs alone, some families do this very successfully and some have sad endings. Without knowing how your dog will react we won't recommend this but leave it up to the family to decide.
