Not so long ago I didn’t know anything about teacup pigs ( micro mini pigs ) and at that time when someone mention pigs my first association was huge pigs rolling in the mud in some farm yard. Then I accidentally saw a reportage about some guy from UK who’s breeding extremely small piggies, and that short reportage changed my life.
Since that date I’m investigating on Internet an reading everything that comes to my hand about teacup pigs.
This incredible animals may be the best choice for pet, they are very smart and they love to play. Some say they are smarter that dogs. They are clean and easy to maintain pets. If you imagine that they are really teacup size I have to disappoint you they are that small only when they are born. But however mini pigs are much smaller then standard farm pigs and regular potbelly pigs. Miniature pigs reach full-grown size when they are between 2 to 3 years old. Adult micro mini pig typically weight around 30 – 60 lbs and are about height of a medium size dog. Occasionally you can find breeders whose full grown pigs are in the 25-32 lbs range, in most cases that pigs come as a result of crossbreeding between micro size potbellies and mini juliana’s. A life span of this adorable creatures is 15 to 20 years. So if you are looking for a companion that’s gonna be with you for along time mini pig may be the right choice.
My goal is to write down on this site everything I know about teacup pigs and to provide useful information for everyone who is interested in mini pigs.
