    Bonded Boars - Sudden Fight? Please Help!

    I have two boars Monty (2.5yrs) and Simba (1yr) who I bonded last month. Thread here: Bonding Two Boars - Advice Needed! Since the bonding they did get a lot better, ate together, slept together etc. with Monty being the dominant one. Over the past week there was more chattering and nosing...

    Bonding My Current Guinea Pig To Two New Ones

    Hi! Currently I just have my single guinea pig and have not partnered him yet. I got him from a family friend who was breeding and couldn't take his brother as well because he was claimed. Around 7-8 weeks after my guinea pig and his brother were born there was another single birth from the same...

    Mango And Frankie

    Well today I’ve decided to try and bond Mango and Frankie as I’ve got a few days off together to keep an eye on them. We’ve had all the usual behaviour, sniffing, chasing, rumbling, a few lunges, chattering. A few times they’ve napped and lay down next to each other but woken up and the scenario...

    Seperate Cages But Same Floor Time?

    I have four guinea pigs, and they are in pairs in different cages. I started off with the two and adopted one more which didn't get along with the two original ones so I bought a fourth one to keep the adopted one company. I'm wondering if although they are in different cages, could I attempt to...

    Should I Separate My Boars?

    I'm new to owning piggies, I just got my first one on 11-26-17 from a pet page on Facebook and did all the research I could and knew he needed a friend. So on 11-29-17 I adopted another male from the shelter. I have no idea how old either of them are, but the first one was owned by the previous...

    Should I Adopt A Male Or Female For My Boar?

    I have two boars however, since adolescence they have fought and nip each other constantly - they had plenty of room in their cage! The problem started as one of my boars was already very 'snuggly' and would press himself against his cage mate and sleep on top of him! However his friend did not...

    Floortime

    I never realised how fun floortime could be! The first time I tried it with Mo, I was rather nervous - and he stuck by my side so I think he was too :lol!: but eventually he learnt that my bedroom floor was a safe space and went mental! Now I get them out together as much as possible. I...

    Boar Trio Working?

    if you read my last post you'll know why I'm doing this. So it was either put my two guinea pigs with the new one or get a New Guinea pig to go with the new one. As originally I really wanted 3 guinea pigs together I ended up trying it just to see how it would go. Pringle and mojo and the 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?

    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...

    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...

    i have 2 males, I got them last week and one is setting in well (and seems to be the boss!) and making lots of noise and exploring and eating well.. the other one is very quiet, barely makes any noise and just hides in his hutch and doesn't appear to be eating as well as the other one. They are...

    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...
