We are getting 4 piglets in about 5 weeks, one for us and raising three for friends. I have heard various things about not mixing chickens and pigs, about how chickens can give pigs TB and then they can not be slaughtered for meat. Etc, Etc. Our chickens are in a coop/run in the back of our house, we are putting the pigs down in the woods in the front of our house about an acre away from each other. My question is, are all these rumours true? Do they need to be kept seperate? It seems odd because when you think of a barnyard you think of chickens and pigs roaming together(kind of lol). Thanks for the help all!
