when you introduce two piggies to each other, it needs to be done on neutral territory. They then decide whther they like each other and want to form a bond with each other. If they do, then they will be fine together. If they don’t like each other then they will not form such a bond and will not be able to move to their permanent cage together. They wilWhen I was doing research it said that if female gps aren’t put in the cage at the same time than they will fight over territory. Is that true?
It needs to be somewhere clean that doesn't 'belong' to any of them.I’m struggling with the whole neutral ground thing myself, as my 3 piggies have been everywhere in my entire house.
Sounds weird, but we actually introduce new pigs by putting towels in the bottom of the bathtub and a pig at each end and some hay in the middle and then we observe. It's obviously someplace neither has been, it's oval so no one can get boxed into a corner, and there's enough space that they can avoid each other at first while they get used to the idea of a new pig. After they have accepted each other, we will move them to a thoroughly cleaned/scrubbed down 'new' cage that the original resident won't recognize by scent.
