    im sure some of you own pigs as pets and was wondering if any of you could give me advice. It will be my first time owning pigs and want to know how high I should make the fence and can I get just one or do I need two pigs. I have chickens and goats they obviously won't be in the same area but they can see each other. Any helpful advice I would appreciate! I'm not getting them until summer and want to be fully prepared and have everything ready!

    Welcome to BYC, sorry I don't know anything about pigs, except you need strong fences to keep them in and some people use electrified fencing to remind them of boundaries.
