The little pigs we bought a few weeks ago are now enormous and have settled in well to their new home in the big park.
We've got sheep, goats, chickens geese and these are without doubt the easiest animal of all of them!
All pigs need is a good sized park split into two or three different areas which can be rotated. When they've dug up the ground in one of them, move them on to the next one and that helps to reduce their internal parasites. We only worm ours about twice a year.
They need a simple shelter, checking over from time to time for external parasites, for ear cleaning and to keep them friendly and easy to manage.
They love a wallow and at the moment they eat all the brambles we cut for them, tree clippings, weeds, eggs, snails, slugs, and a few heads of corn. In the summer they've loads of vegetable trimmings, courgettes, tomatoes, carrots, cabbages - anything really.
These three are really good fun and are having a great time hunting for worms roots and mice and lounging around in the late spring sunshine.
