    Help! 2 Boars constantly fighting, but no blood drawn

    Hi guys! I rescued two skinny pigs from a local rescue in February. They are going to be two years old in July. I know that boys can be aggressive with each other, but I’m having a hard time determining if what I’m seeing warrants separating. One is specifically the bully, and the other never...

    New owner desperate for help.

    Hi everyone. I just recently adopted (three days ago) two piggies. The previous owner had no information on them and their living conditions were not very good. From what I could tell these are two boys. One is quite a bit bigger than the other and seems to always bully the smaller one...

    Possible bullying

    Hello. I have had two boars for about 6 months now. I would say they are about 8 months old. They are living in a 2x5 C&C cage with a large hay rack in the middle, plenty of hides and two water bottles. I believe one of my pigs is bullying the other. He often corners him and makes him squeal in...
