    Relocation & Fighting

    Hi all - I’m hoping for some help. Last weekend (Apr 20th) I had to move my two male piggies’ cage to a different room in my house, and ever since then the more dominant one (French Fry) has been quite aggressive in his chasing and vocalizing towards his companion (Peanut). Background: I’ve had...

    Happier alone?

    Hi all. 👋🏼 I posted previously about one of my boys nipping the other and drawing blood. They settled down immediately after that and all has been quiet, however I have been on super high alert watching their behaviour since then. It seems like dominant pig is using the sub pig’s bed as his...

    When/if to separate?

    Hello fellow piggie-lovers, I recently posted a thread alike this one, but things have changed since then. My two 12-week-old and 13-week-old guinea pigs just do not seem to get along. Freddie (dominant) just won't leave Wilbur alone sometimes. I also notice that WIlbur gets a bit annoyed when...

    Do my piggies not get along?

    Hello! I recently got my second pair of piggies, they're around 3 months old and brothers. Their names are Wilbur and Freddie, and I absolutely adore them. However, I am worried they aren't getting along great. My previous pair got along great and never had any issues, but this time around it's...

    Fighting and separation anxiety?

    Hello, I have been trying to find a friend for my male (~2.5 year old) piggie, Casper. I found a sweet/troublemaker skinny pig and they did fairly well with introductions at the shelter, so we decided to try a foster-to-adopt. I started slow, switching dishes and hideouts then put them together...

    My newly introduced guinea pigs are fighting. Please help!

    Hi, please help me to understand how I should best bond my two pigs. I have researched as much as I can, but seem to get conflicting reports online and I’d really just like advice. I adopted my first pig (female, 2 years), who had been living alone for most of her life with her previous owner...

    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...

    Just looking for some additional advice about fighting boars

    I posted a couple of days ago about two of my boys Ollie and Bobby who were bonded and living happily together suddenly fighting and how I was separating them at night and when I was away out of fear of them hurting eachother when I wasn’t there (which I realise now wasn’t the best thing to do.)...

    Any advice for piggies that have suddenly started fighting?

    Sorry in advance for the long post! I posted here a few months ago about how my boy Rico passed away suddenly and I panicked and adopted 2 boys for his friend Kip. It literally happened on the same day because I was so distraught about Kip being lonely for any amount of time at all and just...

    Ongoing boar woes

    It seems our boar issues are never-ending. After the passing of one of our boys a year ago, we sent our remaining boy (prawn) to go dating at a local rescue centre. He came away paired with a lovely big boss boy (goose). They’ve been together 4 months now and until recently got on fine. Goose...

    Separated pigs due to fighting

    We had two guinea pigs, 2 girls. 1 died then we got a neutered boy. The rescue shelter said his temperament and age would be a good fit. Introduced them slowly over 6 weeks since boy was recently neutered and it was the advice given, scent swapping and so on. Had them in the same room but...

    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. I got up to check on them and Bunny - the (neutered) boar and leader - was chasing my three girls...
