What's a wattle?
Each Red Wattle sports two fashionable fleshy, kidney shaped dangles at the corner of each jowl. Around here they’re known as “Piggy Bling”. We think other pigs look funny without them!
What are they good for? Well they make it easy to tell RW’s from other pigs. They make little kids giggle when they touch them. They are great conversation starters. Oh and they gave the breed their name.
What purpose do they serve to the pig? None. We think maybe they help the pig stay cool, by acting like an evaporation cooler, but no one has every found a real purpose for the wattles.
