My daughter and I have been very careful to let our two new girls get used to us. We’ve had them for three weeks now and although one of them is still skittish we thought the other one was more comfortable with us.

My 8 year old daughter, with my supervision, was holding the one who has been friendlier. I picked up the piggy and placed her in a fluffy blanket for my daughter. My daughter was seated and she supported our piggy’s body. About 2 minutes later our little Panda began chittering at my daughter. That frightened my daughter so I gently placed Panda back in her habitat. I’m not sure what set her off. Could it be that we tried to handle her too soon?

it may be she just wanted to go back to her cage. I would say don’t take out just the one. But also bear in mind they may not like being handled, which is fine. It may take longer for the other to settle in. Some members on here have piggies who took over a year to feel more comfortable with them.

How old are they? Have a read of the guide below.

Thank you, Siikibam. They are young. Maybe 6 weeks old. We will take it slowly and re-read the guides.
