Log In needed $200 · Mini Piglets, Sunday June 25, Duncan Buckerfields poultry swap 11AM-12PMReport Ad
I have 4 mini piglets between eight and fifteen pounds each born mid February and early March. These are from the same bloodlines that are available around the area for as much as $1,200, $1,500 and even $2,000.
IMO these are not reasonable prices and I have heard people selling them are often making false claims. They tell you how big the mom is, but pigs grow for as much as three years and she may be only eight months old and forty pounds,
They often tell you their pigs are micro-mini but there are no guarantees, and most will still get to 45 kilos or so. Sizes will vary, but my biggest full grown sow is the spotted one pictured, so you can judge for size. Just like people, some stay exceptionally tiny, but even midgets usually have ordinary sized kids.
They are a mix of Dwarf breeds: Juliana, Kune Kune and maybe a smidge of potbelly. I have two tiny runts going at $300 each and two just small for $200 each.
I'm not gonna lie to you but I would rather these piglets go to good pet homes rather than "freezer camp" Not IMO an ideal indoor pet, and should never be given food from your hand. It makes them prone to bite hands. I've never been bit.
Feeding them high fibre duck and goose food keeps them healthy and their weight down. Feeding controlled amounts also helps.
These are nice pigs, and I've never had any hurt each other and I've had about 30 now. Even the bigger boars (I don't neuter mine) are sweet and affectionate, and love belly rubs. None have ever harmed a piglet. I suggest you neuter pigs for pets to keep them smaller.
Bring a dog or cat carrier or a sturdy box to get them home.
Feel free to call if you have questions. Pigs are highly intelligent and I don't want them going to unsuitable homes where they will be a problem.
If you're sure you want one, you can reserve one with an e-transfer of a deposit.
