Pigs are always hungry, so people overfeed them. An adult potbelly gets about 1 cup of food per day or they keep getting bigger.

Wow, all pets really do end up looking like their owners.
Came here to say this.

TommyymmoT: "Micro-pig" ?
I think the term you are looking for is "baby pig".
I know a guy that owns a Bull Mastiff that only weighs 20 pounds.
It's less than 3 months old though.


There are small breeds of pigs commonly owned as pets. She thought she was getting one of those.

What she got was a hell of a BBQ.

specialkae: Alright as a morbid turtle owner, and Henry knows I would never.   How would I go about making Turtle Soup?  Inquiring minds wish to know and I have a really good seafood quarter about 45 mins away...pray tell


My basic understanding is that fresh live turtle goes into a tank with VERY clean water, I believe 24 hours?  The idea is to somewhat "flush them" and start a cleaning process of sorts.

You then chop their head off, then nail them upside down to a tree to drain the blood for a bit.

Pop the top of the shell from the bottom, clear the digestive tract, scrape out the meaty bits, then cook from there....

Got a few pot bellies, properly fed with mini-pig food and veggie/fruit scraps.  I got tired of being called "not an animal" person by my wife so  I said screw it and picked one up.  Choose the biggest and strongest looking piglet.
Best decision I've made, raised from piglet up.  Very smart, does tricks and continuously get's out of his pen.  He doesn't go anywhere, just follows me around when I find him.  I think its the act of coming up with a plan and successfully executing it is what he likes.  Always friendly and loves to fall on his back for belly rubs.

Wat. Turtle soup is not only legal, but a go-to item on many menus, especially in places like New Orleans. And we're talking fine dining, not Cletus' BBQ hut outside Baton Rouge.

Ah so....I need to go to New Orleans for Turtle Soup then made with real turtles, yes?  I've eaten alligator and rattlesnake, elk, deer and other forest creatures.  Is it worth the trip or no?  I mean, we can make bacon anywhere, but turtle soup is supposed to be a big deal to those who haven't had it.  Will it make me weep with joy or cry with the shame?

/Yankee


I'll tell you what; Sunday champagne brunch at Restaurant Des Familles has turtle soup and everything about that experience is worth coming to the New Orleans metro area.  In the warmer months the alligators come out of the swamp to sun themselves on the bank, right in front of the big bay windows. The Catfish Foster will make you cry tears of joy. The rum soaked bread pudding will sop up all the shame.

Those smaller breeds aren't nearly as small as what they're advertising "micro-pigs" as, which basically means they show an immature parent and claim it will never grow up.  They're not going to stay pocket sized like half these places advertise, and a lot of the media seems to have bought into... partially because many do not realize how long it takes them to reach full size and that they may have piglets before that.  The pet ones end up 50 to 200 lbs.  When you search 'micro pig' the first site advertises all the parents as under 20 lbs.  They don't stay that small unless they are still young or are starving or sick.  There have been a lot of these articles and the people have no idea what they're getting into.  The pig in the article is claimed to be 280 lbs and appears very, very fat.  It may be one of those smaller breeds - just not nearly as small as the scam advertisements.

Dudley may have more problems than just being a not-micro pig. In the first pic he appears to have an udder, complete with nipples.

Does that pig have a goiter?

Didn't people learn that there are no such things as miniature pigs during the pot-bellied pig craze a decade or so ago?

You aren't getting real turtle soup, at least at modern restaurants.

You are at best getting beef hock soup, at worst getting calf head or hoof soup.

And why would you consider beef hock to be better than calf head?  Neither is acceptable if you've been told you're getting turtle, of course, but you're going to get more flavor from the head.
