    Need advice! Is it possible for my three boars to get along?

    Hi all! I'm sorry about the long text but can someone please, please give me some advice about bonding my piggies? So, I have three guinea pig boars, two bonded brothers, Billy and Teddy, (around 16 months old) and one named Carlos, who I got separately (between 4-6 years old, probably a cuy)...

    I feel quite worried at the moment, and I always see very nice posts on this site with very useful information! but I didn’t really see anything helpful to my situation so I thought why not try this 🥺 One of the boars had to go away about a week after getting him. He was already introduced...

    Preparing to bond boars. Advice needed.

    I’ve read Wiebke’s excellent thread on here about bonding piggies (thank you Wiebke) but have a couple of questions I hope members might help me with. Am preparing to bond our existing boar Steve ( 9 months, so a teenager) with new boy, 5 months). Steve’s buddy died very suddenly nearly 2 months...

    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...

    Territorial over food?

    Hi, any help would be so appreciated. I have 2 females, Biscuit was adopted and is at least 2 years old (actual age unknown) and one new addition that we got 2 days ago, Piglet - she’s a baby. :love: We did an introduction and all was really smooth. Biscuit seemed to take Piglet under her wing...

    Should I get my piggy a sibling?

    I have a male guinea pig that's five years old. I'd really like to get him a friend, but I'm not sure if a male or female is better. I'm not looking to breed, so I'm a little skeptical on a female. Any advice for getting him a sibling?

    Male Trio? Neutering? Male herds?

    So I’ve been talking to my friend who’s old classmate is trying to rehome their two male guinea pigs, for a few months now. They asked me several months ago (right after I got my two girls) and I was thinking about getting them but they never responded. Until like a week ago, and she told me...

    Smelly boar

    I have a 3 year old boar (Dale) who's suddenly developed a bit of a whiff. A few weeks ago his cagemate from birth (Chip) died, and he was devestated. I had to syringe feed him critical care to get him to eat (which admittedly gave him cowpat stools), as he refused to eat by himself. He wasn't...

    Bonding 3rd guinea pig

    Hi! I have 2 boars living in a 6ft*2ft c&c with an extra 2ft*2ft to make it an L shape (total 16 square ft). They’re both around 8 months old. Today in my local pet shop I saw they have a lone boar (looked small so about 2 months I’d assume) who I instantly fell in love with. I know it can be...

    Re-bonding after Cuy passing

    Hi all, my gorgeous Cuy boar (Chip) passed recently at just under 11 months - it was my first Guinea pig loss and it was only worsened by how short his life was. My main concern however, is my very dominant - now bereaved - boar Cookie. Today I am bonding him with Sundae, another boar who he...

    Newly Bonded Guinea Pig Aggression

    I have two guinea pigs - Luna and Lily. Luna was born Feb 2017, and I adopted her Sept 2017 along with her sister. Her sister passed away in the middle of August, so after giving Luna time to grieve, I decided to try bonding her. I went to our local small animal shelter and found her a cagemate...

    Re-Bonding after same-cage separation?

    This might be a bit of a silly question, but I’ve been wondering whether or not you have to re-introduce two pigs (boars, in my case) on neutral territory with all the precautions of a complete re-bonding if you’ve simply had a couple see-through grids between them for a day or two? Would it be...

    Bonding Skinny Pig?

    So, I’ve had my skinny pig (Persephone) for about a month now, and she’s nice and settled in with no disruption to my males in the same room (but unable to see her.) I’ve been keeping an eye out for a while for any suitable adoption girls to be able to put with her, and one has JUST come up that...

    Sow lunging during bonding

    I am currently bonding my 2 6 month old sows to my new 7 week old skinny pig. My one girl Ruby (grey Peruvian) seems to be getting on fine with her but my other girl Meg (texel) keeps lunging, chasing and nipping at her. They’ve been together for about an hour now and she’s still doing it. I...
