    Brothers fighting out of nowhere

    So, to cut a long story short I rescued these guys from a mum who had four sons, she’d got the kids guinea pigs for them and they grew bored of them and they never really got the correct care, in a cage that was too small and were being given straw for a year of their lives. They’re 1 next...

    2 Boars Rumbling Constantly

    Hello :) I have two boars, one aged 8 months and one 6 months. We bonded them about 2 months ago and after a week or so of initially getting used to one another they seemed perfectly content in living together in their 6x2 CC cage. However, a few days ago they began being a bit hostile with each...

    Help! Guinea Fight. Need Advice.

    Hey all, I have 3 boars who have all been separated at one point or another because of compatibility. I got a new cage and paired two of them together- there has been basic behavior of them trying to establish who is boss, I’ve had guineas for years so I wasn’t super concerned. They’re the same...

    Help! 2 Boars constantly fighting, but no blood drawn

    Hi guys! I rescued two skinny pigs from a local rescue in February. They are going to be two years old in July. I know that boys can be aggressive with each other, but I’m having a hard time determining if what I’m seeing warrants separating. One is specifically the bully, and the other never...

    Advice of bullying and separation

    Hi Everyone, I would really appreciate some help on what to do with my 2 boars. So I’m used to them displaying dominance behaviours, we do have one boar who is particularly territorial and bossy. HOWEVER I feel like it’s now become more of a bullying issue. I’ve noticed our dominant piggie...

    Donuts still picking on Buckets

    It has been a month now😖. Buckets regularly has little wounds on his bum or redness from pulled out hair. They get along totally fine all day, they explore together during the floor time, they sit close to each other and chill out of their hideys in the cage. In the morning I saw chunks of hair...

    Questions about the bond between my boar trio

    Okay. So I’ve been wanting to post on here for a while now to get some feedback/insight on the situation with my three nearly 7 month old boys. I didn’t know about the dangers and stress of having a boar trio, until after I already got my three boys. They lived all together as babies before I...

    3 boars - 10 months of fall outs HELP!

    This is a long story so I’ll try to keep it as brief as possible... I have 3 boars, one who is ~3 1/2 years old (Garf) and two others who are 1 3/4 years old (Ozzy and Ted).

    Warning: Image of injury at bottom. Phil and Alex have had a fight. I'm used to their normal bickering but today was by far the worse. Phil's ear has been torn nearly in two, I can see white which I assume is cartilage. When I picked him up i found many scratches that had scabbed over under...

    2 boar guinea pigs hate each other

    Hello! I own two male guinea pigs. They were bonded and perfectly fine until about a month ago when they kept fighting each other. Luckily I separated them in time before they could draw any blood but they had their teeth out and kept jumping on each other. At one point they looked like a big...

    To Separate or Not To Separate

    In May of 2018 I adopted two bonded intact boars. I was told they had come from a pet store and were together their whole lives. When I got them they were both a year and a half. One was bigger (then 1000g, now 1200) and one small (then 800, now just barely 900). The big one is named Denali, the...

    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'...
