Advice on Owning Piglets
When you should get a piglet
Piglets should never be sent home as bottle babies. This leads to death more often than it ends in a happy healthy pig. Reccomended age for placing pigs in a new home is 8-12 weeks after proper weaning and socialization. If you are offered a piglet under 6 weeks, please ask if it can stay with mom until 6 weeks.
Not Every Pig Can Breed
Parent pigs should be at least 1 year old to reproduce, but keep in mind they will grow until they are 3 to 5 years old. To get a good idea of your piglets parents, make sure you know their ages.
