The pig is a mob in the Minecraft series. When killed, it may drop up to two porkchops, or you may recieve none! Pigs can spawn on grass blocks with a lighting level of 14, if the player is more than 25 blocks away. Like all passive mobs, they will usually spawn in groups of four, meaning that you can recieve a maximum of eight porkchops per group. Pigs cannot be tamed.
