Pig Scale is a feature in Farmville that was originally released on October 4, 2012. Players were provided with a set of scales on their farm and were encouraged to play with neighbours to achieve higher success.
A pig could be fed up to 100 'Pig Chows' in a 7 day period, the more the pig was fed, the more it weighed. Once the pig had been fed 100 Pig Chows or after the 7 day period had ended, whichever came first, each pig was measured by weight, the higher the weight, the better rewards. Rewards included 1 of 5 possible pigs for every fed pig, extra animals, consumables, XP and coins.
Players were encouraged to ask your neighbors to help raise prize pigs. Players were able to feed their own pigs and neighbours pigs to gain rewards. Players were able to ask neighbours for Pig Chow through their feed and by gift but were also able to craft Pig Chow in their Craftshop.
Players received a first pig free, but once that pig had been fed and weighed, players needed to purchase another pig or accept a neighbours' request to raise together pig. This could be completed by pressing Pig Market inside the Prize Pig overview.
When a new pig was purchased, it would appear on the players farm in its infant state. Once grown, it transformed into one of five different collectible Mystery Pigs. The Mystery Pigs were as follows:
Upon weighing a pig, players received three "Bonus Rewards" and were also able to "Collect all 8 rewards". The rewards, listed below, amounts depended on how heavy each pig was.
