Daisy and Poppy sit and wait for their treat

Such polite little pigs!

Daisy and Poppy have learned the command “sit.” Their bottoms go down, their noses come up, and after a brief interval, they get a piece of carrot or apple or other delicious treat.

This is a great behavior to train your pig to do as it engages their mind while also making it easier on you to feed, clean, and interact with them. Pigs aren’t as inclined to jump up to greet people as puppies are, but they do get excited to see you, and you’re not likely to accidentally trip over your pig if she’s sitting for a moment while you get situated.

Piglet family at 5 weeks of age

Maybelline’s piglets are eating solid food now and mimicking their mama in every way, from grazing on the hay to cooling off in the pool. They love people and will even get up from a nap to come over and greet you. They enjoy being scratched, especially behind their ears, and they will flop happily on their sides to make it easier for you to rub their bellies.

These piglets are for sale! Please visit our Piglets Available page for more information.
