Danny- we have not bred the guinea hogs yet. We do have a gilt we may keep back for breeding, but have not decided yet. Perhaps the Guinea hogs mature a little later so they are not reproductively viable until later. I'm not sure. I do know their litter sizes are much smaller- on the order of 5-8 piglets. I have seen some obese sows that were not able to get pregnant. Correct body condition is important for sexual viability.

i do love this breed of pig we have a breeding pair of pigs for the last year now but they have not yet produced a litter. Have you had any luck? if so what age did they breed at? we are located in albany oregon btw.

Looking forward to hearing more as things develop, (especially Jim's innovative solutions to challenges that inevitably crop up). Thanks for sharing & best of luck!
