About Brenda

I am the owner and operator of Mini Pig Farm as well as PigGear.
I no longer breed mini pigs, but I still have 4 of my own.
I started making pig harnesses in 2010 when I couldn't find a harness that fit right. PigGear was created when my mini pig customers needed a bigger size harness when their baby grew out of the one I provided to them.

    I am the proud owner of a Red Juliana mini pig. I have run into a speed bump with him and am trying to ask as many breeders and owners as I can for some input.
    In the last week and a half he has begun to eat his poop. I have tried giving him a full room with more toys to treat possible boredom, and increasing his feed incase he is growing more hungry.
    He is on a steady all natural diet of oatmeal, milo and fresh fruit and veggies. I have recently stopped giving him the milo incase he is after the seeds. I might have some progress in the next few days if that is the issue.
    I would greatly appreciate it if you are able to shed some light on this.

    We bought a micro-mini pig from a breeder in Florida. When we got her in early December she was 8 pounds – the breeder had told us she was 5 pounds. She has grown so much it’s incredible – there is definitely not any kind of “mini” about her. She wants to eat constantly and screams if she doesn’t get any food for as long as it takes for the food to come. I try my best to give her only vegetables during the day after she’s had her pig food breakfast. This girl is always hungry no matter what. She’s even gotten just about too big for her litter box and misses the mark sometimes. She loves to be outside during the day so we let her do that, making sure she has plenty of water out there to drink. I try to play with her, but she doesn’t seem very interested in playing at all. My husband keeps telling me we need to get rid of her, but I hate to do that – I do like her a lot, and consider what we had to pay for her, it’s not an easy decision and one that I don’t want to make. I’d rather keep her right here but don’t quite know what to do with this big girl. I can no longer pick her up at all – she probably weighs about 30 pounds now and she’s only 8 1/2 months old. Any suggestions and/or ideas?

      First off, can you tell me what breeder you got her from?

      Second, it really sounds like she is training you well. She is eating so much and getting so big because you keep feeding her to shut her up. She knows this. ALL pigs act like they are starving all the time. They aren’t though, trust me. She knows what she has to do to get what she wants. I know it’s really hard to ingore, but you really have to show her that you are boss and not her. Don’t give up on her, I know that you are frustrated, but it will get better as soon as you put down some ground rules and only feed her when you are supposed to, not she she wants you to.

      When she screams for food, do not give it to her. set up and schedule for feeding. I feed mine 2 times a day. Since she is 8 months old, she should be get about 1/2 cup in the morning and 1/2 cup at night. What kind of food are you feeding her?
      As far as snacks, just give her veggies. I usually give those in the middle of the day, outside. Just scatter them around her play area and make her look for them. It will keep her occupied and she will get food as well. you might have to show her the first few times, but she will understand what she needs to do soon enough.

      The litter box is a big thing. Get a bigger litter box for her. If you don’t than she will get to the point that she will go anywhere. They really are clean animals and don’t want to feel confined with the potty.

      Also, you should REALLY get Priscills’s book that I advertise on the site.

      Hope this helps

      Brenda
