Red Roof KuneKunes breeds all of the recognized colors of KuneKunes with the exception of the Gold Tip as there are no registered ones known in the United States.  We do not breed for belted / banded / high white as we stick with traditional KuneKune color variations.


Variations of Brown piglets can sometimes have juvenile striping called Agouti Striping in their coats. This striping looks like ginger highlights weaved in the brown.  While the striping is beautiful, the stripes often fade in the first 6 months and the brown darkens substantially.   Often it is very difficult to tell the difference between brown and black when the piglets reach one year of age and beyond!

UNDERSTANDING KUNE KUNE PEDIGREES

&

HOW KUNEKUNES ARE NAMED

An AKKPS Pedigree holds all the information that you will need to have on your pig in order to run a COI, compare pedigrees for potential breeding, enter a litter notification, input a DNA request with UC Davis and much more.


Notice on the Pedigree that the sex of the pig determines its line. For Example a Wilson's Gina Sow and a Mahia Love Boar - all the gilts born in this litter will be Wilson's Ginas and all the boars born in the litter will be Mahia Loves.  


The AKKPS Registrar issues a litter notification assigning names and numbers (the breeder does not do this) based on the information provided by the breeder when the Litter Notification is submitted to AKKPS.  

Line names can be misleading. Make sure you look at the ENTIRE pedigree. The "line name" only represent the direct paternal/maternal line but does not represent the rest of the pedigree.
