On Monday 16th February 2015 Daisy, Jade and I had a drive to Ridgmont, Bedfordshire to a see some lovely baby micro pigs at Petpiggies and that was the start of our very popular Animal Farm.
After a few hours watching the youngster run a round and interact with their mother, we eventually picked out the 2 we liked the look of and also their friendly nature.
So we loaded them up and bought them home…….and they did come into the house when they were small.
They were born on the 6th December 2014, and we named them Bubble & Squeak
We have regular visitors that come to see them and to buy an apple to give them a treat.
Petpiggies has years of experience breeding happy, healthy, pet micro pigs with great temperaments.
We are proud to have earned a reputation for honesty and openness and for maintaining the highest levels of welfare for our little pigs with the support of specialist veterinarians and nutritionists.
Micro pigs can make the most wonderful pets for those with adequate space & resources to care for an animal that generally lives beyond 10 years of age.
Sadly many micro pigs have been abandoned following impulse purchases and a lack of knowledge regarding adult sizes therefore it is important potential owners are fully informed prior to making a decision in favour of ownership.
By far the most important requirement for owning a micro pig is a responsible owner who remains fully committed to caring for their pet and its ongoing welfare.
You will also need an adequate secure outdoor enclosure of at least 36 square meters and to provide draft free waterproof housing i.e a small pig ark or large dog kennel.
There is also a legal requirement for buying and keeping micro pigs, this is called a CPH (Council Parish Holding) number.
A CPH number can be obtained free of charge by contacting the RPA (Rural Payments Agency) on 0845 603 7777.
