The Piglets are five piglets featured in AMC's The Walking Dead. They appear in Season 4 being raised by Rick Grimes and Hershel Greene for food for the survivors at the West Georgia Correctional Facility. Their mother was Violet.
The piglets are seen in this episode getting fed by Rick.
When walkers build up along the fences, Rick and Daryl Dixon drive to the field so Rick can feed the piglets to the walkers in order to distract the walkers long enough for Glenn Rhee and Sasha to reinforce the fences with large wooden beams.
When Rick is burning down the pen, Carl remarks that maybe they caused the disease. Rick replies, "Or we gave it to them".
When the fence starts to give way, Rick decides that they will kill the piglets by slashing the sides of their bodies and leaving them for the walkers, while Glenn and Sasha repair the fence.
- According to Andrew Lincoln, the piglets were named "Bandit", "Truffle", "Pork", "Chop" and "Chaps".
- During shooting, the pigs escaped their pen and Andrew Lincoln chased them through the field.
