Mini pet pig proving she will go to any length in her quest for treats!

The idiom 'Pig in a Poke' refers to a confidence trick originating in the Middle Ages when many meats were scarce but cats and dogs were plentiful!

It basically means it's a good idea to check what was in the 'poke' or sack before parting with your money.

This remains sound advice today and is fittingly relevant to those researching mini pig ownership.

Micro and Tea Cup pigs are underfed to keep them small. Rubbish!

The question below, posted on 26 August 2014, to Petpiggies Facebook page, is not uncommon.

Our answer, in response, was also posted to Facebook and can be read below.

Micro pigs for sale at Petpiggies - August / September 2014

Petpiggies is a trusted breeder of micro pigs based in Ridgmont, Bedfordshire, close to Woburn Abbeyand Safari Park and just 5 minutes from Center Parcs ‘Woburn Forest’. 

We are extremely passionate about what we do and care very much for our little piggies. Petpiggies breed healthy happy little micro pigs with great temperaments and their welfare will always remain our top priority.

It's hot, hot, hot ... make sure your micro pigs are cool!

With temperatures close to 30 degrees, its extremely important for pigs to have access to water at all times.

When temperatures are this high it's also important for pigs to have shade i.e.. a parasol or similar that offers protection from the sun if natural shade is not available.

If you happen to have a shallow paddling, electric fans or a water sprinkler then better still, especially for piglets.

I want to stroke a sunbathing pig on a piano…..

''We need a piglet that will be happy to sit on a girls lap whilst she sunbathes in a deckchair. The deckchair will be on top of a grand piano being played by Radio One DJ Scott Mills, Clean Bandit will be playing bat and ball and volleyball in the background, can you help?'' 
We do get some very strange requests!!!

Micro pig turns into a Farm pig! Really?

''Micro pig turns into a Farm pig''

''Micro Pig became a macro pig!''

''About that ''micro pig'' you sold me''

''Piglet grows up to weigh 20 stone after owner was duped by breeder''

''Micro pig grows to 25 stone and takes over its owners home''

Really? 

With dramatic headlines appearing in the press about oversized pet pigs it's no wonder the public are dubious about the existence of genuinely small or 'micro pigs'.
