Just out of interest why are you asking for one without piri piri (I assume that's what you mean by wattles?).

Hello
Sorry yes I did mean piri piri and it's really because my two Kune's don't have them and it would just be a preference, but as I said not a necessity.

If you breed with a boar who has piri piri you are far more likely to produce piglets with them which is definitely preferable to piglets without them.
it is rare for anyone to keep a boar who doesn't have them as he wouldn't really be good enough to use for breeding.
i'd advise you to go for the best you can get :)

Thank you for the advice. It was really only because she didn't have them, but taking into account what you have said I will just search for the best boar I can find; so if anyone can help please let me know.

Try 'Redgeorge' on here, I sold them my full boar who is proven several times. Also not too far from Nantwich.

I am in Tilston, near Malpas, are you the Ice Cream folks just outside Nantwich??

I'm not sure where Baddington is but it takes us an hour and a half from where we are near York to my sisters in Altrincham,Cheshire, perhaps a bit far for you?
I have a proven tri-coloured boar with piris called Henry, you can see a picture of him on www.oakhousekunekune.co.uk, he is very gentle and friendly and has sired many litters.
