After seeing more than two boars happy together i tried bonding my 4, it worked well, they all sat and ate together, but then power crazed Bandit decided to attack Bing, I had never seen a gp jump so high ;D he went about two feet in the air! anyway, i now have three happy bonded boars and one happy (although he doesn't know about the little op he is gonna have) gp who lives by himself in a two story c+c cage. He is going to move in with the girls after his op

I've never managed to keep any more than two boars together. In most cases two boys will live quite happily together but anymore that that and the trouble starts.

I've had 3 boars living together before but it was a rather delicate relationship that could have kicked off at any moment.

I am so so sorry to hear that Bandit passed away. May you always treasure happy memories of him though in your heart!
