can a pair of boars live side by side with a group of sows and neutered male or will this lead to the boys falling out?

i wouldnt as it would probably drive the un-neutered males crazy and they may attack each other. One of the reasons why I dont have sows too so I would never have this problem

poor little dear. How old / weight is he now?

I'm waiting for Bounty to mature which is annoying as he wont stop squeaking because he is lonely but hes only just about to turn 5 months so hes no where near finishing his teenage hormonal times for a while and he really needs a friend :S Bounty is a big lad though hes about 900g.

Could you not get a boarfriend for him but put them in another room?
