Teacup Pigs – Not The Bacon in Your Fridge

It’s the most expensive inedible bacon you’d spend your money on, but the mix raced piglets, at $1,100 a head and only sold in pairs, are Britain’s latest pet craze and have buyers sweating an extensive waiting list. How can you resist that scrunched up pink face? At a mere handful (literally), growing to a maximum knee high size by two years, breeder, Jane Croft, admits to selling 5 to 10 teacup piglets a week, with 500 requests on one website alone, according to the TODAYShow. As an allergen-free (and higher IQ) alternative to dogs and cats, teacup pigs  require a garden, utmost attention and a loving home. The plus side other than their appearance? They’re potty trainable. What are the odds that Paris Hilton replaces her Tinkerbell with a micro porker? At the rate of these teacup pig’s fad popularity, I’d say she could be toting one soon.

    i have a question…
    How big do these pigs get, and how long is the average life span?
    I am loveing these cute little pigs and i am really considering getting one how much would it cost for a male and female if its possible for me to breed them?

  2. Good day. Initial I need to say that I genuinely like your website, just found it the past week but I have been following it increasingly since then.

    I appear to concur with most of the views and opinions and this post is no exception.

    Thank you for a wonderful web site and I hope you preserve up the good function. If you do I will continue to look over it.

    Have a fantastic day.
