The average lifespan of KuneKune pigs is 10-15 years, though they can live longer with proper care. According to veterinary research, the KuneKune breed has a typical lifespan of 12-14 years when kept as pets or livestock. The oldest recorded kunekune lived to 21 years of age.
Lifespan varies based on factors like diet, exercise, genetics, and disease prevention. Providing a balanced diet, vaccinations, and regular vet checkups can help maximize a kunekune pig’s lifespan.
With love, attentive care, your pigs can remain healthy and energetic well into their teens.
For the first 4 weeks, piglets nurse milk from their mother. At 3-4 weeks old, we introduce soaked piglet grain or transitional feeds like oatmeal. Provide milk until 6-8 weeks old. At 8 weeks we transition completely to phase 1 piglet feed with a 16% protein custom non-GMO grain. We supplement with pasture grazing, leafy greens, fruits and healthy fats.
It’s important to follow a proper feeding schedule based on age for healthy growth. Always keep in mind that Kunekune piglets have different nutritional needs than adults and be mindful of those decisions.
Kunekunes make great pet pigs, especially for families with kids. Their gentle, affectionate nature and moderate size suits them well for handling. Kunekunes actively enjoy playtime and bonding with owners. Their intelligence means easy leash and trick training. As breeders we health-test and socialize all our kunekune piglets to be friendly. They need minimal care when properly housed and exercised. Please understand they are not a mini pig breed if considering them as pets.
Kunekune pigs typically stand 24-30 inches tall and weigh 140-220 lbs. Height and weight depend on gender, diet, genetics. Breed standards state ideal size is 28-32 inches for boars, 24-28 inches for sows. No “mini pigs” , “micro” or “teacup” Kunekunes exist – avoid dishonest breeders.
