PIGS have been pleasing residents in Earley as one local wants to introduce everyone to Chopsy and Percy, her adorable-micro pigs.

Helen Bantock, a local crafts business owner, spent yesterday morning taking her pet piggies with her on her daily walk through Earley, both on leads of course.

For those of you wondering, Chopsy is the pink pig, and Percy is the grey 'spotty' pig. They are both six months old.

Micro-pigs aren't technically a specific breed of pig, but a term that often refers to smaller breeds of pig such as Tamworths, Kune Kunes, Gloucester Old Spots and cross-breeds of the three.

The cheeky young pigs, who's full names are Chopsy Chop Chops and Percy Winkle-Boo, were spotted by locals on Sunday, April 26.

Helen said: "Both pigs are a bit bonkers really. They chase each other round the garden like puppies.

"They both have very different personalities - Percy can be a bit of a biter, despite being the smaller of the two. He definitely calls the trumps.

"Chopsy is much more gentle, he will give kisses and he was the first to let us rub his belly."
