Have you ask a mod to sticky it?
Thank you, and welcome to the forum too!
If the little one is getting out of his way and not becoming aggressive back then it should be okay. Have you put a few more hideys down/ can you make the living area larger?
And during veggie time scatter the veggies out, so one doesn't hog everything too.
How old are all the boys together? Have you tried a bonding bath?

This thread is so useful to me, thank you for all the info you provided! I am soon to be the proud owner of 2 handsome boar brothers who were born in a rescue. They are 6 months old so going through the hormonal stage!
Great guide, I will have to follow this if I can eventually bond Mojo and smudgy
No problems just wanted to help
This is really helpful, thank you.
This will help since this is my first time owning two boys. I planned on trying the buddy bath we shall see how it goes
Thank you for this, my boys are coming home tomorrow so I am really nervous and I know I will be back on here A LOT for advice
Ive been introducting my piggies for 5 days in a row now. First time was good, but then it went badly.. Today they fought a little and I separated them.. I think I will leave them be for a few days and try the bonding bath...
Please be aware that every single time you separate the boars, you force them to start right back at the beginning and go through the whole dominance protocol again. It's like crashing their computer without saving any data. The boars often get fed up with that and become hostile. Be aware that you will need to sit through any mild and medium dominance behaviours and only separate when the humping is truly relentless and winding up one boar or if their are signs of an impending fight. Please also accept that a successful piggy bond is based on mutual liking and character compatibility, and this is often doesn't happen. Piggies of both genders can be cery picky about who they gel with.
