So, my girl Riley had pups almost a year ago, I placed all of them in homes. Sadly one of them died around 5 weeks. He had stopped growing soon after i had found a home for him. the new owners did everything in there power to help the little dude but he didn't make it. I placed another with my boy friend who i see on a regular basis and my boy friend made the comment the other day about my boor being huge compared to his chewie. My concern is that Chewie is approaching a year and is quit small. Riley is also a smaller pig but I'd think males would be bigger? I'm just wored about this.. and comments or advise?

Pigs can be different sizes just like people. If he's getting the proper nutrition, then he's probably just on the smaller size.

Just them, I think. Juarez is quite small compared to Darwynn, even though they are only two months apart.

I have a pig who is perfectly healthy and 6 months old, but only the size of a 3 month old. She's just very tiny.
