Question
my mini pig is 6 weeks old and about 5 days ago she started grinding her teeth usually just before she goes to sleep in my arms why I have raised 4 other pigs and none of them did this

Answer
Each pig is unique with their own personality. Many pigs grind their teeth just before they fall asleep. It means they are happy and contented. Your pig might also be teething, which can make a pig grind more than usual. She may or may not grow out of this habit
