    I need help with my guinea pigs and bonding

    Last night one of my guinea pigs bit the other. The one that was bitten was 5 months and he was bitten by a guinea pig who was 2 years 10 months. They are both boars. They are normally not aggressive with each other and the teenage one is actually the dominant one. He was bitten in the back near...

    Successfully Bonded?

    Hi So I have two boars that I've been working on bonding for months now. They are housed in side by side runs and I've been getting them out in a neutral area for play sessions. They are finally showing signs of being happy together (i.e laying down together, sharing hay etc), but I don't...

    Bonding Issues/Questions (Boars)

    Hello all I apologize in advance for the long explanation, I'll start out with a bit of intro. A couple years back my sister got a guinea pig. His name is Bleu. We went on vacation a while later, and boarded him at a rescue. We asked them to try him out with some other pigs to see if there were...

    Fighting and separation anxiety?

    Hello, I have been trying to find a friend for my male (~2.5 year old) piggie, Casper. I found a sweet/troublemaker skinny pig and they did fairly well with introductions at the shelter, so we decided to try a foster-to-adopt. I started slow, switching dishes and hideouts then put them together...

    How long until they bond, if they do?!

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has some words of advice or hope that my piggies may still yet bond! I have 2 piggies, Ted and George. Ted is 3 years old and was originally with his Uncle, Monty, who passed away a couple of months ago. He was showing signs of loneliness so I bought George who...

    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...

    Bonding seperation?

    So a few days ago I upgraded the cage of my 3 year old pig and it is now big enough to host 2-3 pigs. I have 3 pigs and Finnian has been left by himself because he was not able to establish dominance and get along with the other two. Today, I tried again for the first time in over a year to get...

    What's Normal? - Day 2 of Bonding Boars

    Hi all! We had the opportunity to bring home another buddy for our loner boar. Both are teenage boars (I know, not the ideal time to bond) Following the bonding/intro forum on this blog, I'd say the intros went pretty well. They spent about 4 hours in their intro area before being moved back to...

    Too soon to bond?

    I had 2 pairs of boars but Bumble recently passed on Friday so I was thinking I should bond Bambi with Horace and Benji. When I first got Horace I tried bonding him with Bumble and Bambi it didn’t work out as they were too territorial but I was thinking now that Bumble has passed it’s worth a...
