Miniature Pot-Bellied Pigs reach puberty around 6-7 months of age. Female pigs (sows) have a heat cycle every 21 days that lasts about 3 days. The gestation period lasts around 114 days. Litter size will depend on the size and age of the sow, the normal litter will have between 4 and 12 piglets. Piglets normally weigh about one pound. If you do not plan to breed your Miniature Pot-Bellied Pig you can schedule it to be spayed or neutered as early as 3 to 4 months of age.


Piglet Care

Temperature should be maintained between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid hypothermia. Iron supplements should be given during the first few days after birth to prevent anemia. The piglet’s needle teeth should be trimmed in order to prevent injury to the sow or littermates. Canine teeth can be removed around 4 months of age.
