    Do I need to permanently separate my 2 boars?

    Hi, new to the forum but had a lot of read about, and was hoping for some advice. Me and my partner have had a couple of boars for about 2 weeks now, and we are still very new to guinea pig parenting. They are about 4-6 months old. We know that this is their early teenage years that are...

    Query - Possibly failed bond?

    So I felt I would know if a bond has failed but I’m unsure. As you know I recently welcomed my new addition Stitch for Steve. I returned home from work today and Steve has a scratch on his nose and a tiny tiny speck of a scratch near his eye. It’s not a wound I’m concerned about. It’s not deep...

    Issues with 2 young Boars

    Hello, We just recently adopted two young boars, around 6 months and 7months old and everything has been fine until the other night, they started fighting pretty bad and I had to put a divider in their cage. I know some amount of rambunctiousness is normal, but one of them lost a decent chunk...

    New addition!

    Figured I would start a thread to document the newest adventure I’m about to have with my piggy friends. I am bringing home a baby boar tomorrow in the hopes that Steve will tolerate one who is smaller than himself especially if he has another bout of bloat in the future. Once I have...

    Bonding 3rd guinea pig

    Hi! I have 2 boars living in a 6ft*2ft c&c with an extra 2ft*2ft to make it an L shape (total 16 square ft). They’re both around 8 months old. Today in my local pet shop I saw they have a lone boar (looked small so about 2 months I’d assume) who I instantly fell in love with. I know it can be...

    How long to wait after separation to begin boar dating?

    My two lovely boars recently had a falling out, and after a couple days of trial separation I have decided to separate them permanently. The underboar has perked up noticeably and the more dominant boar has been doing zoomies all day enjoying his uninterrupted cage space. The underboar seems...

    Boar Chasing - How much is too much?

    Hello, I have two bonded boars who are just over 3 years old. Trying to add a third to the mix (Fabio, ~6 months old). The introductions went well. The dominant pig (Boe) did his thing and was good to go. His bonded mate (Joey) was relatively subdued during the initial introductions. After a nap...

    Bonding Boars- Need Advice

    Hello! I adopted Charlie in February and he’s now a nearly fully grown boar. Knowing he needed a friend, about a month ago I adopted Wilber, a 3 month old boar. After a three week quarantine, they met in a huge room. I had a blanket, hay, vegetables, and all the necessary items. At this point...

    My Journey With "an Evil Pig"

    Hello! My name is Hayley and i would like to share my experience thus far as a guinea pig owner to give new pet parents a new perspective on raising boars and/or sows. My first interaction with a guinea pig was when i started my job in pet care at my local Petsmart. We were a brand new...

    New Guinea Pig?

    i have two boars about 1 years old and am thinking on getting another one round 8-10 weeks. I've heard trios aren't a good pair though... what's the best way of dealing with this and can it work? If not what else can I do?

    Another Mo & Steve Query

    So by now I'm guessing Steve has gone through his teenage hormone stage. He's testicles have descended etc and he's definitely bigger then he was. Last night and now tonight (can't speak for the day as I wasn't here all day) They seem a bit uptight with each other. No full on biting or any real...

    Just A Query Regarding My Two Boys

    So I don't know why but I've got to worrying about my two boars Mo & Steve falling out...I just realise that it could still happen and I dread of one day finding one of them hurt when I come home or something. Maybe it's because I've been on holiday and come back so I'm still getting back into...

    Fallen Out Boars

    Hi I am after some advice. I have 2 boars brothers 17months old. Had them since they were babies and they have got along well until the last couple of months where they have started fighting :( They have always shown quite a bit of dominance behaviour but recently had 2 bad fights where they...

    A Friend For Teddy, Continued...

    Hi All! It's finally time to sort out getting Teddy a friend; he's just too sad out there on his own. Now, I'm wondering (please tell me if this is a horrible idea) if I could rehome a piggie and bond the 2 myself, or whether it's better to leave it to the professionals? I'm not sure I meet...
