Housing Requirements

After seeing the photos of our miniature pigs on The Little Pig Pen, you probably think that you would love to own a mini pig too.

However, mini pigs are pigs, after all, and they have some special housing requirements which may not apply to owning a cat or a dog.

You will need to check with your local council if you are permitted to keep a miniature pig where you live.

Miniature pigs are classified as livestock, and sometimes even if you live on acreage, your council’s regulations may not permit you to keep a miniature pig.

While miniature pigs may not be the most athletic of pets, they do like to graze on grass throughout the day and need the space & amenities to allow them to be a pig.

For this reason, and our piglets’ happiness, we do not sell piglets to people living in apartments or on house blocks of less than an acre. You need to be living on at least an acre or a farm to keep a miniature pig.

De-sexing

At The Little Pig Pen, we sell all of our piglets de-sexed. Pigs make much better pets de-sexed. If they aren’t de-sexed and don’t have another pig to mate with, they can become depressed, frustrated, and sometimes even aggressive.

Temperaments

Our family spends time sitting and playing with all of our pigs and their piglets. All of the piglets are well handled and cuddled and quickly settle into their new home. We also love to send photo updates as often as we can to eagerly awaiting new owners.

Pricing & What's Included

All of our piglets are priced at $800 each.

Included in the price, your piglet has been:

  • De-sexed
  • Vet checked
  • Vaccinated with Plevac vaccine for pigs
  • Wormed with Dectomax

 

Each piglet also comes with an NVD pig pass and an ear tag identification. 

Every new owner of one of my miniature pigs also receives a copy of The Little Pig Pen’s care handbook and their piglet’s birth certificate (including the piglet’s full parent history).

We are available 24 hours a day by phone or email for advice and support.

We will always be honest with the information we give and will do our best to make buying a piglet a stress-free and special experience.

Our Waiting List

We have a waiting list for those looking for something in particular, like a specific colour or sex.

We take a $50 non-refundable deposit to go onto our waiting list, and when a litter is born, we notify those on the waiting list first. Those on our waiting list have the first pick of the piglets available.

When someone picks a piglet they want to buy; we take a $150 non-refundable deposit to hold that piglet, which helps cover the cost of de-sexing. That piglet is then considered sold.

All deposits paid come off the total price of the piglet. The amount owing is paid upon pickup or delivery of the piglet.

Transportation Australia Wide

The Little Pig Pen sells piglets to people all over Australia, so if you live interstate, we can easily arrange transport for your piglet. Please contact us for a quote.
