I think my piggie is pregnant…

It’s unlikely that this is the case. Any girls that have been around boars will have been kept with us for ten weeks of pregnancy watch. It’s usually just the girls filling out, now they are well cared for and happy in their new home. If babies do arrive, let us know, we will sort everything out!

If you have been unfortunate enough to buy a piggie from a pet shop or breeder, who is pregnant, we are able to help. Be sure your piggies are sexed correctly. If you have a boy and a girl, the boy must be separated before any babies are born. Sows can become pregnant again within hours of giving birth.

Once your babies are 3 weeks old, you are welcome to bring them to the Nest to sex them. Boys are sexually mature at 3 weeks and must be separated from their mum and sisters. We are usually able to take any babies you aren’t able to keep.
