    Bonded pair fighting

    Hi everyone, about eight months ago I adopted two pigs from a shelter. They are two male piggies about a year old at adoption and were already bonded. I could tell from their interactions that one pig, Tucker, was the dominant pig. Although lately Wilbur the other pig is starting to fight and...

    Fighting Started

    I have four female pigs and they are 20 weeks (dominant piggy), 16 weeks, 16 weeks, and 10 weeks. Just a couple minutes ago my one 16 week pig, and the dominant piggy started lunging at one another and mildly fighting (no blood drawn or need for me to separate because it only lasted a second at...

    11 Month Old Boars Fighting Phase - Advice Needed

    Hello everyone, Newbie here! My 2 boars, Grumps and Fluff, are going through a bit of a difficult time at the moment. About 2 months ago they went through what I think was their teenage hormonal stage. They were rumbling, chattering their teeth and had a few scuffles but nothing too serious...

    Castration?

    ive posed before about little fights and things, it's not really any worse. I have noticed more marks on them now, like grazes, but nothing serious. I took them to my vet for other reasons and he recommended neutering them if their fighting became any worse, he did say though it often calms down...

    Piggies Just Started Fighting

    I have had 2 pigs who are brothers for about 3 months now. They are close to a year old and have been together since birth, although they're not from the same litter. When we adopted them they were fine, but over the last few days that have started chattering and fighting frequently, and I don't...

    Bereaved Question

    Hello all. New here. Yes, I read the above threads, but as you all know when this happens you still have to ask. So, we lost a pig yesterday. Truffles. He died very quickly, as did his brother (actual brother, from the same litter, who passed away about 4 months ago). They were bought from a...

    Urgent: Will My Pigs Ever Get Along?

    Hi! I got a new guinea pig today, as I had one pass away recently after only having her for a few weeks :no: I have a 1 year old female, and when I got her previous friend (about 6 weeks old) who passed not long after I got her, she was fine with allowing her into her life. Today I got her...

    Male Guinea Pig Fight Left Wounds- How Should I Treat Them?

    Yesterday I was doing floor time in a big space with my two guinea pigs who are brothers, Alan and Blondie. I left them alone for a little bit to clean their cage. They live together in one cage but they are seperated from each other because they always use to have little squabbles that die off...

    Concerned About My Piggies

    I've got 2 boars that used to like live side by side in different cages, one day they managed to push their ways into each other's cages and they've been together ever since. the original plan was they were both going to be neutered and would have new girlfriends after their little friends died...

    Rescue 2 Boars Together Now They Are Fighting? :(

    I adopted two boars that were paired together, jethro and leroy from a Guinea pig rescue near me and am getting a little concerned about leroys behaviours towards jethro. Leroy has been getting very aggressive towards jethro; biting him continuously, mounting him, not letting him drink or eat...

    Two Boars Had A Fight

    I have two male guinea pigs who were getting on fine until about four weeks ago when they started loudly teeth chattering at each other. It then progressed into one of them occasionally lunging at the other, before they both ran off. Usually when they're like this it's when they're having floor...

    Need Help With My Two Piggies?! - Failed Boar Bonding

    I am new at this forum and I live in the states but this is the only forum I could find. I bought a Guinea pig from the pet store about a month ago who is about 3 months old. He had his own cage and was living all good but I didn't want him to get lonely. I rescued another Guinea pig who is 6...

    Aggressive Behaviour?

    HI there, my wife and I rehomed two guinea pigs today. I've never had any, but my wife has. Anyway, we have a cage about the same size of the cage that the centre had them in. They are shy piggies (between 1 and 2 years old, they have been companions since before the rehoming centre had them)...

    Crisis Of Conscience

    I'm having a crisis of conscience and finding it hard to decide what is best for me and my pigs. Initially, I bonded by two boars and they seemed very happy with each other. Archie the younger pig has established his dominance as the younger and the faster of the two. They spent a good few...

    Fight!

    Unfortunately it seems it was a bit too good to be true. After about 3 weeks of my two boars getting along fine and dandy, tonight they have had a big ball-of-fur scrap in their play pen :no: I've separated them to calm down for now. They share a hutch but it's 2 levels and they tend to take a...

    Trio Of Boars Has Resulted In An Injury!

    Hi everyone, I'm new to these forums and to boars in general! I've owned 4 females in the past and they all got along well with each other, but just today I discovered several shallow bite wounds on the rump and side of one of my boys. I feel horrible as they appear to be a few days old (dry...

    Hutch Recommendations Please

    I've recently rehomed two male guineas, after a few days of having them (and cutting back the terrible fur matts that the rosette had), I found that one was bullying the other and the rosette was covered in quite nasty bites. I've separated them and they're now living in indoor cages, side by...
