It takes three months, three weeks and three days to have baby piglets. (Average 115 days). There are usually four to eight piglets in a litter. (Average, five in a litter. They are weaned between 4 & 6 weeks of age. We let Mama Pig tell us when it is time. Miniature pigs live an average of 15 years.
Miniature Pigs have quickly gained popularity for a number of reasons. They make excellent pets and are easily housebroken. They are exceptionally neat when given the opportunity to be so. They only become dirty when kept in surroundings that prevent them from being clean. They are not finicky eaters, don't bark, have no fleas and rarely shed. The natural body smells like fresh cut straw.
Their tremendous intelligence, and amiable nature are quickly making them a strong contender as America's favorite house pet. They learn quickly, love to please and always want to snuggle. We have a limited number of litters of Miniature Piglets available each year.
They range in color from blacks with minimal white, blue backs (pink body with blue/gray rump and around eyes), dalmations ( pink skin with black pokadots), and black/ white fancy pintos, ( 50% black/white) and silver/gray body with black spots and rare TRUE PURE BLACKS. Sometimes the babies have blue eyes.

Which gender is better for a pet PIGLET? There is no "better" gender. It depends on what you want your pet to be like in the long run. A pet should always be fixed, but even then there are a few differences. Neutered males are more laid back, mellow, and easy going in most situations. Spayed females have opinions, are more demanding, and are more active.
A few facts and differences between the sexes.
If you are looking for a pet, an animal that will bond with you and love attention, then your piggy must be fixed. Pigs also stay smaller if fixed. Intact boars chomp their teeth and create frothy foam that has a foul odor. Boars will "mark" their territory with this foam and with a pungent liquid produced by their "boy parts". Boar's tusks grow very thick and long. Boars do not bond well with people unless they are looking to hump someone. Boars are also prone to testicular cancer. Neutered barrows do none of this. They are calmer and bond very well with people.
Intact gilts and sows are almost worse. Left intact they start their heat cycle at about twelve weeks old. They cycle every 21 days and the heat last 5 to 7 days. They go through a very strong hormonal change and yes suffer from and lash out because of it. It is very similar to PMS. During this time they will jump on anything and anyone in an effort to breed. Keep this in mind if you have small animals or children. Intact gilts and sows will also whine for hours and call to try and find a boar. The incidence of life threatening uterine tumors and infections are very high in intact females. They are also prone to mammary cancer. Another problem is that during their heat, which lasts 5 to 7 days, they "forget" or don't care about their potty training. Having spayed gilt greatly decreases and eliminates most of these problems.
