That's the pigs gone   :(just had pork chops for my dinner :happy: and they were excellent :D
1 weighed in at 105 lds and the other a whopping 162!
It was a great experience keeping them ,I really enjoyed it.Very satisfying and no problem at all.
I'd recommend it to anyone with enough space to keep them.
It's better to burn out than to fade away !!     ;)

looking at your sig - I'm glad you didn't burn the chops, and the weight of the piggies - they certainly didn't fade away either  :lol:

I love the sound of that!  Cute little piglets to feed up then some tasty pork that should last a while in the freezer.  Shame the OH would want to keep them as pets but maybe she'd lose the attachement once they were fully grown.  Or some diversion tactics could work hehe.

Did you buy them from a farmers market then pay someone to dispatch and butcher them for you?

Hi Daamoot,
I bought them at 10 weeks old and raised them on my allotment,took them to a local abbatioir at 23 weeks.
A brilliant experience and well worth the effort,by the time they get to 23 weeks they are getting pretty boisterous so maybe your other half might start to lose any attachment!
I'm trying some Large Blacks next I think.
