Kune Kune's Wanted
« on: April 19, 2008, 06:30:01 am »
Hi

We have had a lady here who bought a couple of chooks and became fascinated with our pigs she ended up asking about them but explained that she only had a small area of about 200m X 200m to keep animals but would dearly love to get some pigs.

As a suggestion I thought that Kune Kune's would be a good starting point and she asked if we know where she can get some but I don't, does anyone here in France have any suggestions as to where a pair could be obtained??

Thanks
Andy

She should advertise on Anglo Info Brittany as a starter and Total France has a smallholder section she should also try there.  I know there are breeders in Brittany.

Merci Beaucoup HM, Good thinking & I will suggest doing just that.

How is the weather in your neck of the woods?? In fact for anyone else here 'en France'?? Thought it was picking up but nope rain, rain and just a little more rain!!

Hi Carole

Had a couple of replies from other sources and have sent these on but as yet I haven't heard whether the lady has had any joy or not.

I have Vietnamese pot bellied piglets available. They would suit a small area.
Not too far away from you.
