I'm really sorry to hear that your piggy is still missing, you must be really worried about her. It sounds like you are doing everything that you can. The only other thing I can suggest is asking at local farms, maybe someone has taken her in. I really hope that you find her.

Well its good news that she is still nearby. She won't go far as she will be able to hear and smell her brother and want to get near to him. Is there any other food she is especially keen on... apples? or even buscuits - I know there not good for her, but if they get her home then worth it!

Sorry to hear that you have lost your piglet, I doubt they he will be far away. Go out with a bucket of pig nuts and call him and rattle the bucket of food hopefully he will come running home. Good luck.

I would get a good firm brush and give him a very good brush before adding any oil. Then I get the oil pour it into my hands and massage it into the pigs skin (you get nice soft hands too!) how much really depends on how dry his skin is. After I have applied it I then give them a good brush again af...

My boar doesn't have any piri piri, however he has never sired a piglet without any piri piri and he has sired quite a few litters. I believe that he did have piri piri when he was younger, but I was told they dropped off.
