What I mean by the title is if you take pig's home while they're dead, does that stop them from spawning? Or does having them die from a mob or you killing them change their spawn time? If you could also post the normal respawn time that would be nice too.

  • I am sorry for the butcherd grammar.

According to the wiki, when a pig is killed they will always respawn in their house. They respawn the morning immediately after their death. As far as I can tell, this is regardless of what killed them or whether you occupy their house.

Additional information can be found at the wiki page.

    Do you know if destroying their house stops them from spawning?

  • Given that's their respawn point then yes, they wont respawn any more. You can of course build a pig house to get a new pig.

  • From the video's I watched on youtube, I was told you can kill a pigman, then attack its house and it (or on of its compatriots) will immediately spawn again to protect its home.
