    New Baby Coming

    This is Sunny, he's 11 months old and he might be getting a little brother tomorrow! I've read all the info in the forum about bonding two boars. I've purposely waited until Sunny's hormones were a bit more stable until introducing a new friend, to minimize fighting. Personality wise, Sunny is...
