    Size Difference

    Hi guys! Not sure which forum to post this in but I have two males, both the same age (so I was told when I bought them- and they were the same size) but Artie is now loads bigger than Archie who still seems tiny.

    Herd Size

    This is probably a dumb question, but does it take a certain number of piggies to make a herd? Also, I want a good size herd but I'm not sure how many I should have. Any suggestions?

    Big Boy?

    Hey everyone! My new-ish boar, Gus, is four months old. I was just wondering if he is pretty big for his size. I saw a sow from my city at the state fair that was a dalmation too. She was probably from the same local breeder. (FYI, I am not a fan of breeders. I am hopefully going to adopt...
