Why are their pigs for sale on craigslist.....isn't it to early???

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I was on craigslist and was noticed that their are a lot of piglets for sale on their. Isn't it to early in the year to sell piglets??? I don't know much about pigs but I might get one this summer.....I'm just researching it right now. But isn't it to early in the year to buy piglets??? I just don't want to decide that I want to get pigs and then have it be to late if I decide to get one in April or May.

2 german shepherds, a beautiful, amazing 4 yr. old Paint horse named Miss Priss, 1 cat and 7 buff orpington pullets, 5 brahma pullets and 1 brahma cockeral!!!!! RIP my dear mini lop rabbit Shimmy......we will never forget you girl. You will always be in our hearts.

Happy are those who dream dreams and do whatever it takes to make them come true. I LOVE MY HORSE!

Piglets are sold when they are available to be sold.  There is no "season."

Not to early,.....if there here.   gig    wink   When I was young, Dad had pigs, & we had piglets on the ground all year long. I guess dad planned it that way, so we always had pork in the freezer.

I think it's also getting to be time to purchase pigs for fair showing, demand is on the upswing right now.

Pigs don't have a season. They'll breed year round.

Pigs have a gestation of 114 days and a weaning time of about 4 weeks so they will typically breed and have multiple litters a year regardless of the season.
