Our exceptional breeding herd’s bloodlines include a variety of miniature breeds, resulting in the optimal offspring. The “estimated” mature size of our piglets is based on past litter results and pairing of specific breeder pigs. Our mature breeding herd’s height ranges from 11″-16″ tall (11″ being a rare exception).

Our entire breeding herd receives an annual health check by an accredited USDA licensed veterinarian. The examination includes a full health assessment of each individual breeder pig, body conditioning evaluation & scoring. Furthermore, a verification of each pig’s measurements is also conducted, including, height, length, circumference, girth and weight. A signed & dated veterinarian record of certification documenting the results of the health checks are kept on file at our facility.

We have selected size categories such as Mini Oink 1/2/3/4 as “language” to describe the size classification of our herd’s offspring. As miniature pig breeders it is necessary to identify breeding pig sizes in order to be honest with our clients and not mislead them about the expected adult size of their prospective miniature pig.

BEWARE, don’t be fooled by deceitful marketing tactics used by some pig breeders… labels such as nano, micro, pocket, dandie, pixie, teacup and toy are often used to make buyers believe that the piggy they are purchasing will remain that piglet size forever! NONE of those names represent a particular pig breed, nor will any mini pig fit in a teacup, purse or pocket once fully mature!!! It is nearly impossible for any breeder to guarantee the precise size that a piglet will have once they reach adulthood (3-5 years old).

At Oink, Oink, Mini Pigs we do NOT guarantee weight, height or size of any piglet/pig at maturity. What determines the weight and size of a mini pig at maturity is not based solely on genetics. A healthy and well balanced diet, lifestyle and daily exercise regimen play a major part in the development and mature size of miniature pigs. These determining factors are impossible for us to enforce once they leave our care, therefore guaranteeing mature size inconceivable.

Our advice to any prospective mini pig owner is to do their homework and as much research as possible regarding miniature pigs in general  before committing to any adoption. Always deal with an experienced licensed & certified reputable breeder.

We are convinced that our exceptional breeding program is a result of the passion and dedication for our miniature pigs and commitment to our adopting piggy parents.

It is with heartfelt loyalty that we join our piggies with favorable homes, ensuring them and their new families’ endless years of happiness!
