    I just got my pig 2days ago. She is 5 weeks old. She is eating and drinking. She pee’d 3 times so far but no poop? Is that normal. My breeder told me not to take her outside for 4 weeks to let get bond and to get used to how fast they are.

      Hmm, I might disagree with your breeder only because your pig might very strongly prefer to poop outside as most pigs do. I would not leave her out there, just bring her out in a small enclosure so she can poop. She may be nervous but she may also be waiting to poop outside. Most pigs prefer to pee inside and poop outside. So give it a try for maybe 5-10 minutes a couple of times per day to see if this is maybe what’s going on!
