    Found Scabs And Scratches From Fights :(

    So we have had our three gorgeous piggies for 5ish months now and they are 9 months old. Never had an issue with them until recently where they have started fighting with each other. Our poor Diamond is the victim in all of this, with George doing the biting and scratching and Graham keeps...

Pigmum gave us a paper bag today to play with and within a few minutes Steve had tolieted in it! I don't know why he does it. I've tried to show him...

    My Two Boys Are Not Getting Along

    Okay, so roughly two-three weeks ago my two boys (Fred and George) were separated from each other due to Fred getting an eye injury from a fight with George. The new cage I had gotten for Fred is the exact same as the one they shared, so they each have 8 sq ft each to roam around in as opposed...

    Interested In Your Stories!

    Any other usual behaving guineas out there or do we have the only one? Tale 1: Benji.. black and wait short haired. Pretty sure Benji thinks he's a human, he hated his previous housemate with a passion, and now his new friend hasn't faired any better, he rumbles at the sight of him, becomes so...

But most of the pictures are from their instagram account so yeah that's why it's titled 'mo_steve_delightful.duo' for those wondering :lol!: Anyway seeing as we all love a good...

    Bonding Take 2

    ANOTHER BONDING QUESTION My final guineapig out of the separated pair got his friend today. Put them in together, just cracked on as if they've always been together. Lots of popcorning, eating together and only a bit of rumbling and smelling. Is that alright? 0 experience of a bonding session...

    Mo & Steve Update 2

    Thought I'd give another update on my two boys- and once again thank you all for my help. It's apparent now that Steve is going through his hormone stage but no fall out has happened. Occasionally Steve mounts Mo but he doesn't seem too bothered. They've started popcorning together and almost...

    Birthday Gift Help.

    It's my grandad's birthday soon and I'd love to get him something piggy related. He looks after Mo when I'm on holiday (now Mo and Steve haha he's yet to meet him) and he loves them. Affectionately referring to Mo as 'Oink Oink' or 'hamster'. (A large hamster *cough* sorry Mo) in fact on phone...

    Hey everyone, I need some advice. I have 2 healthy intact boars that just turned 1 year old in march/April. They've been together since April 2016 when I adopted a friend for my lone piggy. Recently my white pig Milo has been squeaking up a storm for no apparent reason. This happens before...

    Bickering Boys

    We have two pairs of brothers (cousins too, actually!), just over 3 months old, who've started having some more aggressive squabbles between themselves. So far, we've already had to stop all four spending time together after Pooka was getting bullied and I'm not quite sure where to go from...

    Little Barney's Friendship Quest Continues

    Barney has met Benji a few more times since my orginal post, and he had started to back down and Benji showed his dominance. We moves his cage into Benji's room so they can hear each other, and were really feeling positive untill today: I had them both on me, and it looked as if Barney was...

    Mo & Steve Update

    (Update from my old thread 1 to 2) Mo and Steve have been together just over two weeks now and I'm happy to say they still seem okay together. There is the rare occasion where Mo will mount him quite a bit but that is extremely rare now and I usually wake up with Steve wheeking over nothing-...

    Introducing Barney!
