"Tea Cup" Pigs

Most people go into business to earn a living. Jane Croft did it to bring home the bacon.

The 42-year-old breeder has become something of a sensation in her native England, thanks to her unique product line: cute-as-a-button miniature pigs that never grow up.

Croft sat cross-legged Wednesday in a stall filled with straw, cradling a squirming litter of tiny little piggies that will all be going to market. They’re called “teacup pigs,” she told TODAY’s Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry — and they’re the hottest pet sensation to hit Great Britain in years.

Times are bad. May be we should rear some at the backyard for pork chop, pork shank, "kueh chap", bbq pork, "cha siew", etc.

If your backyard is big enough, but you may have health issue because you know pigs are usually messy with their waste.
