Micro Bacon

I’ve always wanted a pig for a pet.  From Charlotte’s Web to Babe, pigs are just too cute for words.

But I’ve never indulged my fantasy of owning “Eggs” (cute name I know), as I’m scared of how big they grow and a 300 pound porker in my backyard was always a bit daunting.

But thanks to the ingenuity of pig breeders it seems I can finally realise my dream, that is if I don’t mind paying a hefty price.

Meet the Micro Pig!

With their wrinkled little snouts, tiny trotters and oversized ears, they are irresistibly cute.

In exchange for up to £700, owners take home a pet which weighs just 9oz at birth and is the size of a tea cup.
