I have be looking to get a piglet for a long time now i am currently in the process of getting a CPH number. I have researched into the caring for piglet. I am just very worried about what breeders to go to for my piglet does anybody on here have any for sale on here that are genuinely micro pigs or that can give me any advise.

Many thanks

    Hi Liea, the only reputable breeder that I know of is Wendy Scudamore, Barton Hill, Kentchurch, Herefordshire, HR2 OBL. No. 01981 260749.
    Be very, very warned that there are alot of "cowboys" out there where micro's are concerned and this is the best place to go.
    Keep us posted on how you go.

    She only sells Kunes or swedish micros so the chance of get a pig pig is minute.
    No I have not brought a pig from her, but know by word of mouth that she has a good reputaion, where as lots of others don't.
    Be careful of what you buy!

    the problem i have is that i only want one and the reason we dont already have aniomls such as a dog is that my little sister is allergic to them so it is proving very hard fo rpeople to let meo nly have one although they will never be lonely due to peo[ple always being home. so fingers crossed she considers letting me have one.

    Pigs are very sociable animals so it would be better for them if they had company and they also require space. Am I to presume that she won't sell a pig to just any body! Could this be a women with standards.

    Thank you Stevie , and yes Liea did contact me but sadly i was unable to sell her a pig as
    a) i don't sell micro pigs and don't believe there are any
    b) i don't sell single pigs
    c) i don't sell pigs to homes where i consider there is not enough space for at least 2 pigs to live happily, long term
