    Hi

    I have just purchased micro pig who is now 12 weeks old, and i am a unsure how much pig nuts to be feeding her and how much fruit and veg to give her throughout the day.
    She does feed from my hand and i have tried to pick her up but she hates it and squeals very loudly, she always appears to be hungry.how can i try and stop her from being so bosterious

    Surely this is normal behaviour for a pig? The best person to get the information from for this breed is the person that sold you the piglet.
    They aren't really picking up and cuddling animals, but pigs are wonderful animals.

    Any pig squeels when you pick them up. We had 3 pigs and I picked them up all the time-numerous times a day (until they got too big) and they squeeled all the time, its just what they do! Little squeelers-I think they are afraid of heights.
    And you know the saying "eat like a pig"........they eat all the time-if there is food there they will eat it!!
