    Possible bullying

    Hello. I have had two boars for about 6 months now. I would say they are about 8 months old. They are living in a 2x5 C&C cage with a large hay rack in the middle, plenty of hides and two water bottles. I believe one of my pigs is bullying the other. He often corners him and makes him squeal in...

    Suspiciously close to me...

    Hey! I would like a bit of insight as for the past week or two I've been dumbfounded by my pair of guinea pigs. (They are 10 weeks old, I got them at 6 weeks) since the 7/8th week they are so relaxed around me thats its scary 😂 they will eat from my hand, sleep on my lap (with eyes closed)...

    Re-bonding after babies?

    Hello all - I have two sows, Rumor and Spooky, both under a year old. Didn't know Ru was pregnant when I adopted them, but isn't that the way? She was already in late phases by the time I found out, so the ladies were separated accordingly. Five days ago she had her babies, two sows and a...

    Are my pigs getting along?

    I ve never owned two guinea pigs before now and this is only my second time owning any sort of guinea pig so the interactions they have with each other are still new to me. I have two boars that are about 9 months old and I am not sure if they are getting along well or not. I see them both able...

    Do my Guinea Pig's get along?

    I have two young Guinea Pigs, one boy and one girl, and two newly adopted older girl Guinea Pigs. they live in the same enclosure, and I am just wondering if what I am seeing is normal herd behavior or if it is a cause for worry. The young boy rumble struts a lot. Him and one of the older girls...

    Why Do Boars Intervene?

    Hi Guys, So we finally got to introduced our first Boar after finishing his 6 weeks post-neuter wait. I took everyone out for some floor time. I see he's doing a great job intervening whenever our most dominate sow Chai gets into chattering matches with Mandu and Momo our bonded mama and...

    Bullying?

    Hi! My boyfriend (K) and I have 2 young boars. We got Mason early January, and Henry about a week ago. Soon after K got Henry, he put both guinea pigs in a neutral area so they could get to know each other. Mason was so focused on siniffing Henry's butt to the point where Henry would end up...

    New piggy owner and a little confused

    Hiya :) so two weeks ago I adopted two male, rosette pigs at around 7 weeks old (they're absolutely lovely!) This is the first time I've had my own and did as much research I could before bringing the boys home; the first week all was fine, getting used to the new surroundings and me of course...

    New Pups, Bonding, Food, and Behaviour.

    Intro First i'd like to state I owned my first guinea pigs for 7 years before they passed away a few months ago. However i had these guys when i was a lot younger and did things my way rather than doing lots of research. I'll break this post down into segments about my questions. 1) Early...

    Introducing a female guineapig

    Hi everyone! I’m looking for a bit of advice as we’ve had a situation with our boar pigs which has resulted in us having to separate one of them. We had three boars together and over the past month or so they’ve fallen out. I’ve deduced that they started to get territorial as they have reached...

    Please help me understand this piggy talk?

    So we were handling our piggies who seem to be trusting us a little more! Twilight is becoming a little more comfortable to move on our lap. However, if she sees an opportunity she might try and slyly sneak off but overall she is getting easier to pick up! Heidi is still not so sure! Her...
