    Male and Female guinea pig fallout

    Hello, a couple weeks ago my boar and sow got into a fight that led to an ear wound. I’m sure of their genders I’ve had the sow for over a year now.

    Hostile boar

    Hello, my herd of four has been introduced for about a month now, and they had been fine. I have my guinea pigs in my bedroom so this morning I woke up to very loud squeaking, some squeaks shrill.

    Boars Fighting

    I’ve previously posted about Bobby being poorly and therefore irritable with his cage mate Beans. We separated them when Bobby went for him, which I now realise was a mistake. They were just two weeks into their bonding and up until that point it had gone so well. We did put Bobby’s behaviour...

    Guinea pigs fighting after floor time

    Hi! Wondering if anyone can explain this, guinea pigs (ladies) were happy before and during floor time, and I put them all back in the cage at the same time. Immediately one starts bullying the other. No biting but such aggressive mounting that the mounter fell off. I'm seperating them for the...

    Boar pair fight after bonding week

    Hi everyone! There are so many great resources on this website for understanding bonding basics and anything else you’d need to know. I have a pretty good idea of what’s going on, but turning to professionals for a consensus never hurts. Back in September, I rescued a 6 month old male (who my...

    Which Guinea Pig should I separate?

    Hello, Just under a year ago we adopted a Boar (about 2-3 years old) called Bob from my partner's sister.

    Do my boys need separating?

    I have a 1.5 year old boar Benio, who was bonded with little Ozzie who is now around 4- 5 months. They were bonded when Ozzie was about 6 weeks, and seem to get on fine, with some typical dominance behaviour going on. Since the start, Benio was the dominant pig, with Ozzie usually making...

    So I have two sows and they've been together in the same cage for over a year. They're quite friendly with each other; the only issues they've ever had is that one doesn't like being touched much by the other. They've never had a fight before.
