piggy problem

Postby andy greenfield » Mon Sep 29, 2008 5:42 am

any help appreciated..... my 11 month old black pig is usually friendly and dcile. she walks on a leash and will sit for food like a dog. but once a month for three days when in season, i can not enter her pen. all she wants to do is jump up on me. since she is very heavy this is a problem.she can easily knock me over. I hate to restrict her to her pen for the three days but i cant go near her. is there a solution. how do i explain to her that i am not a boar.

you can get her spayed, otherwise this is very normal behavior for a pig in heat.

I couldn't stand to see my pot bellied pig in misery every month, so I had her spayed. She didn't gain a lot of weight, but then I was in controll of her portions. Gave her the same as always with not problems. Cindy

feed her primarily hay and she will be full and very lean. It make take some conditioning for her to recognize it as food. They like alfalfa best.
