DISCLAIMER: The terms Teacup, Micro Mini, Pocket Nano, etc. is just a term to describe sizing and these terms are not identified as breeds. Mini pigs will in No Way shape or form fit in your purse or pocket. All mini pigs are cross bred and mixed with many different miniature pig breeds like Juliana, potbelly, Hanford mini swine, kune kune, etc. and bred to be smaller over 20 generations. For this reason they are called American Mini Pigs. There is no such thing as micro, teacup, or pocket nano. Those are just cute names to describe them for marketing purposes. You should be very Leary of any promise of a “super tiny” pig. Sizing is dependent on many factors, average mini pigs range between 14-18 inches short, and weight varies dramatically due to genetics and lifestyle just as in humans. Education and trusting your breeder is essential! . The American Mini Pig Association is working on paving the path with a nationwide database, DNA testing, and eventually lineage.
Meet our pig parents!!!! We at Honey I Shrunk the Pigs take great pride in our breeding program. Our American Mini Pig Breeders are our pets. We only have 4 breeding females. Our pigs have free reign of our 1/2 acre back yard, and/or their 650 foot pig house. They are very spoiled. We are AMPA GOLD star registered breeders. We follow a very strict code of ethics, including fixing, vetting, microchipping, registered, take back or rehome all of our own pigs and lifetime support in contract.
