    Guinea hogs make up the bloodline of Florida's wild pigs. Two of my sows look a lot like the Guinea and last season's boar resembled them also. I'm not thrilled about that since the Guinea ears have been a huge pain to overcome in my bloodlines. As for pure lines, probably in some private collections. I know they are in zoos as well. They are considered a rare breed. This link will show you some of my wild pigs. My pigs

    What is the average size litter of guinea pigs can one expect from a guinea sow?

    Sorry about that. Looks like it is still not working. Wonder if that server is in the Bahamas?

    There's a very nice guy in Ohio named Randy Setty. He's very much into Guinea Hogs, and is very enthusiastic about anyone who wants to breed them. He can put you in touch with other breeders to keep the bloodlines adequately diverse. Here's a link to his website: http://www.agrisupportonline.com/home/guinea_forest_hogs.htm . Good luck!
