Welcome to AZ Micro Mini Pigs
Home of some of the smallest & cutest Mini Pigs
Miniature Pigs have been around since the 1940's. Mini Pigs are not all Vietnamese Potbellied Pigs they are a mixed breed of swine and every farm has a different bloodline. Mini Pigs come in all shapes and sizes. So when I get asked the question how big are "they" well that depends. That's a very complex question. It depends on genetics, lifestyle, environment, and diet. The people that are making statements that all pigs will get over 100 pounds and grow to age 5 or more is absolutely incorrect. The latest research study that compared a Miniature Pig to a farm hog showed that the closure of the growth line of a Mini Pig closed between 16-24 months if they were on a steady diet. Fed unlimited feed however there would be rapid skeletal growth and weight gain. If I am an adult in my 40's have I reached my max weight? Of course not if I continue to eat an excess amount of calories more than my body requires. I will still continue to gain weight regardless of age. Same thing applies to a pig. Most people over feed and feed improper foods yet expect to have a small pig that doesn't grow. It doesn't work that way. You also can't with hold food and keep a pig small. If that was possible every breeder would be producing small pigs and they aren't. If you under feed a pig all you would get is a growing pig with an emaciated body. You would see ribs, a raised spine, sunken in hips, loose skin, and a protruding back end. You wouldn't see a perfectly proportioned small pig like I am showing.
Any breeder that claims they have the smallest pigs in the world I would not purchase from. That is a very bold statement. Plus Penny The Pig from my farm holds the Guinness Book World Record for the smallest domestic pig living. Please hit the Guinness Book tab to see the evidence. If a breeder guarantees a weight do not buy from them. As stated above that is impossible to guarantee a weight of an animal. Only a projected weight can be determined. Lastly, don’t believe everything you read online. There are a lot of jealous breeders that post lies in hopes to ruin other breeders reputations so they can take all the business. Always research the actual breeder yourself versus going by what you heard. I have over 9 thousand pictures on my Facebook page of pigs ranging in age from a piglet to over 10 years old. I have over 3 thousand videos. Almost 90% of my pics posted are sent in from actual customers owning my pigs. I have over 2 years of scale pics posted of a pig I kept from my own breeders. I also have a 34 minute video of my breeders. I have provided all the evidence I can possibly do to show Miniature Pigs exist. All someone has to do is hit the photos tab on my Facebook page and look.
I have the smallest class size pig there is. In the past 7 years I have never posted a piglet for sale I have only worked off of my waiting list but I'm finally caught up. I hope that shows my pigs are worth waiting for.
