    Guidance on boar group

    Hi all. I have two 10 month old boys (brothers) who were bonded. One of them is a complete Buddha pig and the other rumbles a lot but never aggressive. I’ve put two baby boars in with them and they are all getting along great. The babies are brothers from an oops litter - 5 weeks old now. My...

    Reintroduction- senior boar afraid of younger boar?

    Hi everyone. A few weeks ago, one of our little boys passed away from a URI leaving his best buddy Nibbler (age: 5.5 y/o). We were afraid Nibbler would become lonely considering him and Yancy had been together since they were very young. 3 days after Yancy’s passing, we adopted Owlie (2 y/o)...

    Bossy piggies

    Just a little rant, telling on my piggies Me: I'm feeling down, maybe I should go sit next to my squeakies to recharge Bomi and Yumi: feel free to let U S pet Y O U but you can't pet us back! Just sit still like a statue or playground and let us rub our furs on you, do parkour jumps on you...

    Doubt about neutral ground for boar introduction

    Hello everyone, I have written about my piggies when I introduced myself but here's a summary: I adopted Geezer (9 weeks) and Tony (4 years) in november 2020. Their introduction was extremely easy and they got along like a charm until Tony's passing around Easter due to a very aggressive...

    Boar Bonding

    Hi there, I haven't owned piggies in a few years, and have never kept boys before. I recently got a 15 week old boar and then a bigger boar (the person who sold him to me claimed he was also 15 weeks but he seems a bit older to me) to live with him. They are still absolutely terrified of me, and...

    Two Boars Fighting

    I have had two make guinea pigs (Bear and Conker) for over 2 years and they have never had any major issues. They have nipped at each others ears before but never drawn blood. Earlier today they got into a bit of a scramble over a raspberry as they both wanted it, neither of them got hurt...

    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...

    Double Checking Normal Behaviour

    Hiya! My boys are about 2 and a half months old now; I just wanted to make sure I've nothing to worry about in their behaviour. For background, they have a two story cage that's about 1.5 by .5 metres, but they're only in there at night. In the day they can freely wander a large section of the...

    How much is too much white stuff on fleece?

    I have two boys, and lately the white stuff has been increasing. Bigger areas in places where they pee more frequently. Where they sleep and relax there’s usually one or two small spots. At first it was a small amount, which I know if it’s calcium that’s normal. Lately it just seems to be...

    Separating for a URI?

    So, this morning I rushed my boys into the vet because one of them was sniffling very audibly - and sure enough, he’s got a URI. The vet gave me antibiotics for him, but gave his brother a clean bill of health and told me to separate them for two weeks until the course of medicine is through...

    Two males won’t pick an alpha

    I have just introduced a young male to an older (not by much) male who is considerably bigger. I purposely picked a submissive male baby so that the natural order would be: introduce them, older one takes dominance role as the alpha boar, then they chill and can be in the same cage. It’s been...

    Successful bonding

    Hi everyone I thought I would post a positive update on here following the quite sad posts I had last year. I lost my boy Courage to bladder stones last year, with the stones returning after an initial successful surgery. I was devastated and his brother Pumpkin was all alone. Knowing pigs...
