Del Boy and Rodney Trotter are Kunekune cross pigs that were bought from a farm in The Weald, Sevenoaks. The gorgeous brothers were born in September 2019 but are not yet fully grown.
Kunekune pigs originate from New Zealand but are not indigenous to that country. They were kept by the Maoris for their meat, however they did not live in enclosures but were allowed to roam free in the house scavenging for food. This could explain why this breed are so friendly and have the most amazing temperaments.
Kunekune pigs have a distinctive feature that distinguishes them from other pigs, they have a pair of tassels under their chin called a Piri Piri or a Wattle.
Del Boy and Rodney both have great characters – just like the real thing and love the company of humans. Their most favourite thing is to have their tummies rubbed which WILL send them to sleep. In fact the boys can often be heard snoring from quite a distance. They are very gentle pigs and will call out when they hear you coming.
Our pigs love to eat apples, bread and pig nuts, although their main diet consists of grass and vegetables.
