I've had pigs for a few years now, and that boy-pigs are better off just in pairs, whereas girl-pigs can live in groups (ie whichever sex you get, don't get a single one). They are very sociable animals so need a playmate.


There's a website here that recommends hutch sizes for pigs:



I hope that helps.
