    Rumble-strutting Piggie For 3+ Weeks?

    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...

    Constant Mounting! Is This Normal?

    My 2.5 year old boar Harry is recently bereaved so I got him a new male friend, Tufty, who the lady at the adoption centre reckoned is about 1.5- 2 years old. I did the introductions 2 weeks ago and after Tufty spent a full evening showing his dominance by mounting Harry incessantly, they...

    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...

    Mounting

    Hi everyone, I just wondered whether anyone could offer me a bit of advice about my piggies? I have had my two girls for nearly three years and there has always been mounting going on but recently it's become constant. It used to be in a cyclical nature so I don't know whether or not it was...

    1 To 2

    Right I've finally done it! Mo has a friend which he is currently getting acquainted to. (Mo has never looked soooo huge!) Okay so he seemed a little shocked at first and a bit jumpy. Then I got a little worried cos he kept nibbling the little ones fur and ears - one of which he caught and...

    Boars Fighting, But Anxious When Separated?

    Hi! I have two boars, they are brothers and I adopted them when they were likely a year old. I've had them since January, and when I adopted them I was told that they occasionally get into little tiffs but nothing to worry about. Lately they've been fighting a LOT. At least two or three times a...

    Piggy Behaviour I Don't Quite Understand?

    Hello, I'm a new piggy owner and have two females, Keira (18 weeks old) and Natalie (9 weeks old). I've read that mounting is common amongst female pigs (I assumed only males did it but after some research I see that both sexes do this) however I haven't stumbled accords anything about...

    2 Brothers, Depression?

    Hi all, I rescued two piggies, Charlie and Alfie, 3 year old brothers a few days ago. Whenever we visited them at the sanctuary Alfie (the smaller of the two) came out, was more inquisitive, braver, and came up to us. When we got home they explored their cage (1mx1m) and seemed okay. I remove...

    Sow In Heat..?

    So I've had Beans and Toast for about a year now. Beans seems to be the domanent one, although most of the time they get on absolutely fine. When it comes to being in heat, Toast can get a bit agressive and relentless with her chasing Beans around, but no violence or anything. However, lately...
