    Query - Possibly failed bond?

    So I felt I would know if a bond has failed but I’m unsure. As you know I recently welcomed my new addition Stitch for Steve. I returned home from work today and Steve has a scratch on his nose and a tiny tiny speck of a scratch near his eye. It’s not a wound I’m concerned about. It’s not deep...

    Hi, It’s my first time posting here so I hope I’ve done this right. I recently adopted 2 sows and they were getting along great. However, I have had to move them into a different room and one of my sows has started rumble strutting a lot and nipping the other pig. The other pig also is...

    Separating bonded adult & babies for feeding?

    Hey all, I have 3 bonded guinea pigs (1 adult and 2 babies) currently in a 3x4 C&C, so space isn't an issue for them. In order to feed the babies alfalfa pellets and make sure the adult doesn't eat them, I'm planning to split the space into two 2x3's to separate the adult and the babies. To...

    Bonding a 6 month old Boar with with two 3 week old Boars

    My guinea pig Womble recently gave Birth to two little boys. They will be 2 weeks old on Thursday. For obvious reasons they can't stay with Womble, so they'll have to live with their dad, Bear. Bear is a teenage boy and whilst he misses company I'm not sure how he'll feel about two baby pigs. So...

    Bonding 2 Males

    Hi, We got our first boar Dwight in Autumn 2019 - he was recommended to be homed individually because he was apparently bullied and when we got him, he had a couple of recovering cuts on his face. We kept him alone until January to see how he developed and he was doing well. He was lively and...

    Boar bonding advice

    Hey guys, in my last two threads I talked about how my guinea pig Hobbes has passed away. Calvin Was Hobbes cage mate and he was the dominant male while Hobbes was more of a chilled guy. I recently found somebody who can no longer care for their 7 month old guinea pig and I offered to take him...

    My mom thinks Guinea Pigs can live alone

    My mom insists that everyone saying Guinea Pigs need to be kept in pairs are lying. Before I was educated on pigs, I had only one female for about four years before getting her a companion. She was an amazing and super friendly guinea pig, so my mom insists that they can and should be kept alone...

    How long to wait after separation to begin boar dating?

    My two lovely boars recently had a falling out, and after a couple days of trial separation I have decided to separate them permanently. The underboar has perked up noticeably and the more dominant boar has been doing zoomies all day enjoying his uninterrupted cage space. The underboar seems...

    Cute Bonding Video Done At London Rescue

    Check it out here: I went to volunteer at a Rescue in London. I like volunteering because at the moment I'm so busy that I can't have any Pigs of my own. They're a small rescue but they're fantastic. They save the lives of abused and abandoned Guinea Pigs and it would mean a lot to me if you...
