    Bonding Boars Day 8 - Bite on Ear

    Hi, today is Day 8 of the bonding process of our two boars. Quite still in the dominance phase. Woke up this morning and inspected the piggies for bites and scratches and found the submissive one (Georgie) with a decent bite out of his ear. (see picture) I know that ear nibbling is part of the...

    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...

She then chases her around the cage until Luna gets irritated and chases her off. Penelope is constantly sniffing her butt. Luna throws her butt in the air...

    Boar Chasing - How much is too much?

    Hello, I have two bonded boars who are just over 3 years old. Trying to add a third to the mix (Fabio, ~6 months old). The introductions went well. The dominant pig (Boe) did his thing and was good to go. His bonded mate (Joey) was relatively subdued during the initial introductions. After a nap...

    Did the bonding fail?

    I got a new 2 year old sow a month ago, I tried to follow a bonding guide, but apparently the bonding still failed. In the beginning the new sow kept chasing, cornering and biting my other sow. I thought it wasn't too serious because people warned me about it, but I recently found two wounds...

    At the end of December, our 7 year old piggie Coco passed away, so we got our piggie Nibbles a new friend soon after to make sure she wasn't lonely, and her name is Charlotte. They have been housed together for almost 4 months now, but 3 weeks ago, Nibbles started to constantly rumble-strut...

    Aggressive Female + Shy Female

    I have had a female guinea pig named Macy for nearly two years, I got her by herself because my parents only let me get one at the time. Recently I got a baby guinea pig (female as well) and she is only two months. I was expecting it to be a bit difficult with Macy as she's been alone for so...

    Mounting And Humping

    We were eating dinner when I heard the boys busy running around. I came to investigate (it was quite boisterous) and found Toffee chasing Fudge around, teeth chattering on and off. He was also mounting and humping him. It’s been going on for at least 10mins now. Should I just leave them to it...

    New Pigs Home... Nips, Bites, Squeaks And Bossy Pigs. Normal?

    Hello everyone, I brought my three rescue piggies home a couple of days ago and they've started to settle. Since they're not hiding constantly now like when they first got home, they've started to show some behaviours that I'm a little concerned about. The least concerning is one of my girls...
