Hello

Can anyone suggest a good book for a completely new wannabe kunekune keeper please? I'd like to have a good read up and research prior to buying !!

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

Agree with Di, those would be my first choice for kunekune pig keeping.

Another good book which I also have is the 'Hayne's Pig Manual' by Liz Shankland.

Happy reading!! :D
Cheerio for now, Sam Jones :-)

Thank you... I've placed the order for the first 2 but I did see the Haynes book and the reviews looked good.
Looking forward to reading about them and eager to own a couple although I won't rush in until I am feeling confident.
