    4 pigs. 1 on his own.

    Unsure what to do with my guine pig Jeffy. We have 4 guinea pigs. 2x brothers. Some reason a pair of brothers now hate eachother and fight and argue when they are near. Making one brother to gain loads of cuts and bruises so we split them apart. This caused the group to be split into 3 pigs...

    HELP! 4males together. Fighting. 1 male bullied?

    New Additions: Gus And Moe!

    Meet Gus and Moe! We got a week ago. Since they've arrived home, both boys have been so sweet. Gus is more outgoing, and was the first out of the two to walk near the side of the cage and sniff us. Moe has been a little more skittish and likes to follow Gus around. They both seem to be coming...

    Boars Fighting, But Anxious When Separated?

    Hi! I have two boars, they are brothers and I adopted them when they were likely a year old. I've had them since January, and when I adopted them I was told that they occasionally get into little tiffs but nothing to worry about. Lately they've been fighting a LOT. At least two or three times a...

    2 Brothers, Depression?

    Hi all, I rescued two piggies, Charlie and Alfie, 3 year old brothers a few days ago. Whenever we visited them at the sanctuary Alfie (the smaller of the two) came out, was more inquisitive, braver, and came up to us. When we got home they explored their cage (1mx1m) and seemed okay. I remove...
