Pig Huts what is suitable?
« on: October 09, 2010, 15:23 »
Hi all,
We are going to have pigs and what would you think of using two old wooden garden sheds for Huts with stable door so only the bottom opens?

Any advice appreciated :)

Amazingly strong animals are pigs. Heavy too.
You might want to build something a little more "Industrial" ;)
We built a pig ark out of 8x4 sheets of 3/4" ply, reinforced with 4x2" timber struts.
They haven't managed to break it yet. ;)

Yes,I had thought they may be able to break the sheds so I have done some research and found a good deal with professional arcs from G&T  Evans!

After all the hassle of making one,the cost of any additional materials and time,I think it has to be more economical to go for the plunge and buy one. :happy:

How much space do you need for pigs?? I would really want a couple, even the youngest daughter does, but thats only because she wants her own bacon and sausagues!!!

Hi Knight Family :)

None of the pig experts have come forward to answer your question, so I found this article which I found interesting and at least in part may answer it.
