These pigs are breed specifically to be exceptional human companions. Breeders focus on genetic temperment first and foremost. By limiting contact the we're not influencing social temperments. This allows us to accurately judge the genetic temperment of the line and not cover up poor temperment with too much handling. Lines will be stable and consistent with the goal. Piglets should begin temperment evaluations around 2 weeks of age. At about 4 weeks of age piglets are introduced to different sounds, smells, other pigs, taken out and handled daily. How they react determines their qualities. We're looking for tempermentally sound, fearless and curious, all of these qualities are in a quality pet or breeder. Timid, fearful of noises, uninterested in humans and skittish will likely grow into a pig that is going to be a bite hazard. This is not a pet or breeder quality pig. Breeding stock is scored on all of the above as well as teat count and conformation. Temperment is first and foremost genetic. There is really no if, ands or buts about it.
Micro, Micro Mini, Daffodil, American Mini, Nano, & Teacup pigs are NOT breeds of pigs.
