Quite some time ago I ran a couple of articles on micro pigs, mini pigs, teacup pigs, miniature pigs, whatever you want to call these specialty bred pigs to make them smaller than a farm pig, domestic pig, or even the Miniature Pot-Bellied Pig. I received tons of emails mostly inquiring about breeders in the US. At the time I knew of none. I did run across a website that had a few different breeders for these little pigs. I emailed most everybody back because I had promised I would. Just in case I wanted to mention it in the newsletter as well. There are a lot of specialty exotic pets on this classified site. http://www.domesticsale.com/Classifieds/Pets-&-Livestock/Exotics/
Be aware that I still don't think these pigs are growing up to be as small as the breeders are advertising. Here is the article I had originally written and the genetics involved to produce these small pigs. With my reasoning in the article, I do believe after several (MANY) generations of breeding these pigs they will eventually come up with a true mini pig or teacup pig. Here is the original article Micro Pig Tea Cup Pig http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art63781.asp
I felt it was a good time to write this new article, especially when advertising breeders of exotic pets such as the micro pig. Please read. Here's the latest article from the Exotic Pets site at BellaOnline.com.
