Well I just received a response to an email that I sent enquiring about miniature pigs, I must say I do not have a lot of confidence after receiving this email
Quote:
Hello ,
I am so impressed with your inquiry about adopting my babies,i
know you maybe in bed now. i have been looking for a home for them for
a while now but not only a home but a forever home for them... firstly
let me tell you about them.
they are all checked and vaccinated,and have all health records
till date and housing documents . I am not out to sell them,all i want
is to give them out to a home or family that is able to spoil them
with the love and care that they deserve,so all i need of you is to
assure me you will take good care of them because i don't want to give
you my pigs out and
discover they are not handled with care.

My main purpose of giving this pigs out for adoption is due to
the fact that i lost my parents last month so i am now responsible for
the family estates and this has led to an increase in my working hours
now i work 16 hours per day and work from Monday to Saturday and on
Sundays i go to church. so you see i have less time to take care of them
so i decided to give them out to someone out there that can take great
care of them and love them like his/her own children .So you just need
to assure me you will take good care of my pigs.I will love to know
this from you,

Are you married?
Do you have kids?
Have you adopted a pig before?
what makes you wiling to adopt my pigs?
where are you located?
i am asking all this just to be sure my pigs will be taking very good
care of my babies

my regards

If anyone knows of a reputable breeder please let me know!

That is disappointing for you Faye but I'm really not surprised at the attitude.

You find a very similar mind-set in miniature goat breeders. A mere question about dressing out percentages of their stock is enough to produce a fit of the vapors.
Honestly, this miniature livestock craze attracts the oddest people.

No, not at all. :duck:
I gather you'd treat miniature livestock as well...livestock. Basically protein on the hoof.

You can be odd if want to be.... :thumb:

I've adopted some miniature "pets" only to later eat them... I really didn't intend to eat the goat, was just using him to mow the lawn. He was such a PITA though, kept jumping the fence. I finally got fed up and asked him to join me for dinner.

I have just heard that a litter of piglets were born 2 days ago. I have a couple of questions, how long before they open their eyes, and how long before they stand up? The ones that I saw at the Royal show were all laying down suckling, a bit like rabbits.

Could these be only 2 days old?

Pigs are born with their eyes open and stagger to their feet almost immediately.
When they are suckling they close their eyes when young....... even go sleep there.

Thanks for that Bushy, with all the fake miniature pig sites, I was just not too sure.
