Gretel our pet kunekune pig

We have three pet kune kune pigs, Gretel is pictures above is the mum of our two boys, Buddy and Geordie. Kunekune pigs are originally from New Zealand and when the breed became endangered a few of them were brought over to Britain for breeding and conservation purposes. Kune kunes are often kept as pets on smallholdings or large gardens as they are very intelligent and have lovely friendly natures. They can be kept for meat, however our three are not going to end up as sausages as we like them so much.

We also have other animals on our small croft and these include chickens and ducks.

hens

Our very old chickens sunning themselves. These hens are between 6 and nearly 8 years old. While they do not lay many eggs as they get older, we keep them as pets and do not cull them when they reach 18 months old as most commercial egg producers do.

Ducks

We have Call ducks and Runner duck (drakes).
