Baby Kune kune piglets

No Peppa hasn't had babies!
but the breeder we got her from has a litter from another sow ready to go soon. Certainly for anyone with any space at all one of these little dwarf pigs makes a really great pet and is an asset to the family.

(I hope that Nikki doesn't see this as she will probably be after a mate for Peppa from this litter as they are unrelated to her)

What's the size difference between an adult kune kune and an adult 'micro' pig?

The Kune Kune is a genuine dwarf breed of pig (originated in New Zealand) the so called micro or teacup pigs have been bred from various breeds of pigs but can be extremely variable in their final size, some do stay small while others get to be normal pig size. There are also reports of two micro pigs producing a litter of normal sized pigs so obviously the genetics have not been 'fixed' in the same way that the Kune Kune has.
The parents of Peppa are both about knee high (18 - 20") so we don't expect her to get any bigger than that and as I say the adult micro pigs can be any size - its a bit of a lottery.
