    Two dominant boars & not enough space, Please help.

    Hello, I am a new guinea pig owner and I have unfortunately made a very irresponsible decision. Ten days ago I set out to get a new pet guinea pig, I had a 2x3 c&c cage set and all of the other necessities. To keep a long story short, I ended up being convinced to get two after being told they...

    4 pigs. 1 on his own.

    Unsure what to do with my guine pig Jeffy. We have 4 guinea pigs. 2x brothers. Some reason a pair of brothers now hate eachother and fight and argue when they are near. Making one brother to gain loads of cuts and bruises so we split them apart. This caused the group to be split into 3 pigs...

    4 boars falling apart into a trio and a single (and a few other problems)

    So in March I adopted 2 boars which at adorable and they worked together perfectly. Then in august I adopted another 2 boars also a pair. After adjusting to their new home I introduced them to each other which surprisingly worked fine. Though 2 of them had occasional dominance 'performances'...

    Aggressive boars that have already bonded?

    Hi there! My five month old boar, Poseidon, has recently started fighting with my fifteen month old boar, Orion, and I’m absolutely perplexed as to why. They’ve been bonded since Poseidon was just a pup, and I’ve never had any problems with them being violent with each other. I’ve recently...

    Arguing Boars

    Hi everyone, I'm trying everywhere for advice on this so I would appreciate any and all help. We adopted two boars in September and, at an estimate, they're around a year old now.

    Our old boar died in March and so I decided in the school holidays to get some new babies as we had lots of equipment!

    Lonely Boys

    After having had three of our four boys attacking each other and some really nasty bites, we've ended up with one pair and two solo :( Now, Fandango and Pooka are by themselves - we've taken the ramp out of their hutch and blocked off the gap so they have a kind of bunk bed thing going on...
