They may be minuscule in stature, but the 10-week-old micro-pigs are among the most cheeky characters at the Broads attraction.

Today marks their official adoption by the Eastern Daily Press – and now we need your help in naming the pretty pair.

Weighing very little, the piglets will grow to a maximum of 20ins tall, but need names to match their black and white and ginger appearance.

Ian Russell, owner of Wroxham Barns, said “Everybody loves pigs and the new additions are going to fit right in alongside our other wonderful animals.

“Visitors already love our greedy goats but we think our cute little girls are going to steal the hearts of everyone who comes to see them.”

The adorable duo already have budding personalities and will be trained by the farm staff just like cats and dogs.

They will live in the junior farm 
on the Tunstead Road site alongside goats, sheep, ponies, lambs, pigs, guinea pigs and rabbits.

Micro-pigs have become popular in recent years, with many people taking them into their homes as pets.

But Mr Russell said the sisters 
will feel at home on the junior 
farm.

He said: “Our purpose-built piggery on junior farm will allow visitors to get up close and personal with the pigs in a fun and safe setting.

“The girls have settled in really well and look forward to meeting lots of visitors over Easter and in the near future.

“We can’t wait to see the great names the EDP readers come up with.”

The person whose name is chosen as the winner will also bag a family pass for the junior farm.

To suggest names for the sisters email rosa.mcmahon@archant.co.uk or write to Rosa McMahon, Editorial, Prospect House, Norwich, NR1 1RE, giving your full name, address and daytime telephone number. 
We look forward to seeing your suggestions.
