We need the pigs to remain close to each other, so it’s a good idea to build a fence around them as you can see in our example.

2. Feed The Pigs

Then, with the pigs close together, we have to feed each pig carrots, potatoes or beets. In our example we will use carrots. Select the carrots in your Hotbar and feed each pig individually using the following in-game controls:

  • Java Edition (PC/Mac), Windows 10 Edition, Education Edition: Right click on the pig.
  • Pocket Edition (PE): Play the pig.
  • Xbox 360, Xbox One: Press the LT button.
  • PS3, PS4: Press the L2 button.
  • Wii U, Nintendo Switch: Press the ZL Button

After you feed the pigs, you will see red hearts appear. This means that the pigs go into love mode.

Once the red hearts disappear, a baby sucker will appear. It usually takes about 20 minutes for the piglet to reach maturity. However, you can speed up that process by feeding the piglet.

And you have to wait 5 minutes before your adult pigs can breed again.
