They call them: Teacup/Micro/Micromini/Pocket/Nano/RoyalDandy, what ever you want to call them, they are all the SAME THING!!!!
A MINIATURE PIG.
PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE SCAMMERS!!!!
I have seen ads where scammers are claiming adult pigs to be under 8 inches and 10 to 15 lbs, there is no such pig in the world. When I asked for a picture, the man was holding a piglet that was about 5 months old, I could see the tail tassel ! This he claimed was the mother of the piglet he was selling.
NEVER BUY A PIG IF THEY WILL NOT LET YOU COME TO SEE THE BREEDER PIGS AND CAN NOT PROVIDE YOU WITH A LIST OF PEOPLE TO CONTACT THAT HAS THEIR PIGS.
WE HAVE TONS OF REFERENCES, JUST ASK:)
READ THIS BELOW, IT IS PROBABLY THEE MOST IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SCAMMERS...
HOW TO TELL THE AGE OF A PIG????
THE TAIL TASSEL TELLS IT ALL :)
ADULT PIGS HAVE A Tassel , (LONG HAIRS AT THE END OF THE TAIL, THESE HAIRS CONTINUE TO GROW AS THE PIG MATURES.
PIGLETS HAVE NO TASSELS WHEN THEY ARE BORN, THE TASSEL GROWS AS THE PIGLET MATURES.
PIGLETS THAT ARE 3 MONTHS OLD WILL HAVE A TINY TASSEL ABOUT 1/2 INCH LONG.
BY THE TIME A PIGLET IS 6 MONTHS OLD THE TASSEL WILL BE APPROX. 1 INCH LONG.
THE TASSEL CONTINUES TO GROW....
ONE TO TWO YEAR OLD PIGS HAVE TASSELS 3 TO 4 INCHES LONG.
BY THE TIME A PIG REACHES 3 TO 4 YEARS OF AGE THE TASSEL WILL HIT THE GROUND.
SOME!!!! BREEDERS/SCAMMERS ARE SHOWING PICTURES OF VERY YOUNG PIGS AND SAYING THEY ARE ADULT/BREEDER/PARENT PIGS. SCAMMERS ARE ALSO TELLING YOU THE PIGLET YOU ARE BUYING IS 5 TO 6 MONTHS OLD, "SEE HOW TINY THEY SAY"? AND THE PIGLET IS REALLY ONLY MAYBE A MONTH OLD.
IF YOU CAN SEE THE TAIL AND THE TASSEL, YOU WILL KNOW THE AGE OF A PIG.
OINK, OINK, OINK, YOU CAN NOT FOOL US ANYMORE, HA!!! WEEEEEE WEEEEE KNOW THE TASSEL SECRET !! THE TASSEL TELLS ALL!!
