An email I received today forced me to write this post.

People in general take advise from people only if it fits their needs at the time. What I mean by this is, say you want something really bad ( micro mini pig ) and all the websites out there are telling you that there is no guarantee that your pig will stay small. Then you find one site that claims they will stay the size of a teacup. You will believe that one site instead of taking the advice of all of the other sites. I am not saying that there aren’t any micro mini pigs out there still weighing in at under 20lbs after 3 years. All I am saying is that I have never seen one in person. Even if I did, how could I guarantee that it is full grown.

Well first off let me say:

  • If you want a really small pig, you are going to pay a lot of money for it.
  • If you think that your pig is going to stay the size of a teacup, think again.
  • Just because a breeder charges a ton of money for their pig, does not make them a good breeder.

Most people ask me where they can get a Royal Dandy micro mini pig without paying the ridiculous amount of money that they are asking for them. Unfortunately, the only way to get a Royal Dandy pig is from Royal Dandy themselves.

I can’t for the life of me figure out where these people get the prices that they charge for there pigs. When I was breeding, I calculated feed cost, supplies ( litter,harness and leash, etc…) vet charges, starter care package and just added a few bucks for taking care of them for the first 6-8 weeks. I’m sorry but 4-5 thousand dollars seems a bit high to me too.

mazuriPot Belly Pigs need a specialized diet to ensure they get all the nutrients needed to live healthy life. You cannot run down to your local feed store and ask for pig food. Be sure to get Pot Bellied pig food or mini pig food. When you get your pig from Mini Pig Farm, we send you a starter bag so you can wean your pig off of our feed onto the feed of your choice. As long as the feed is made for Pot Bellied or Mini Pigs you can use it.

When you get your piggy home, start feeding it the food we provided. Use it for the first 2-3 days to help the pig feel comfortable. It was a long trip and the less stress the better. On day 3 , begin adding the new food in with the feed we supplied. About half and half. Your pig may reject your choice of  feed at first. What brand you feed your pig is up to you.We have done a lot of research and have tried many different brands of Pot belly pig food. We finally decided that Mazuri mini-pig food is what they liked the best and is the most nutritionally complete. Mazuri products were not available at out local feed store but they were able to get it for us. You can search Mazri’s website for a dealer near you.

There are many places to purchase Pot Bellied Pig food, so find one that is going to be convenient for your needs as well as your pigs. Please be sure to choose quality first. Your pig has special dietary needs that it won’t get from eating dog food( oh yeah put up the dog food they’ll eat that too). It is very important to set a feeding schedule for your pig. These are very small pigs, and will only need ¾ to 1 cup of feed per day. We recommend that feed you pig twice a day. Try to set a routine, something like getting up in the morning, take the pig out to potty, come in have you’re coffee, then feed the pig. It’s not critical to feed them as soon as you wake up. However, pigs like routine. They learn fast and will appreciate you for keeping the schedule. Do not feed the piggy every time it beckons. At some point your little buddy will test you. Don’t give in!! Keep them on a schedule and your pig will be understand and know exactly what to do.

Feeding amounts:
Morning = ½ cup
Evening = ¼ – ½ cup
