Hello everyone, I have a really important question and need help.
Here is a little backstory : my sister had two piggies for about 5 years not and last march I got myself a little girl from a piggie breeder. Pepsi has a cage on her own but my sister would bring her piggies round a couple of times a week and they would run together out the back. A few weeks ago I decided to get her a friend and after searching for days I bought a little baby boy ( he is only 6 weeks old and I'm getting him neutured asap ) and I let them both out to run about on common ground since I wanted to introduce them. I didnt even realise when but Pepsi bit his ear and took quite a big chunk out of it. She keeps trying to nibble on his ears and pulls on his fur. She acts happy and runs around at the same time though so I'm not sure if she is being aggressive towards him or not? I also heard that it might be a space issue but Pepsis cage is huge and its opened most of the time so she runs about the whole room. Please get back to me because I dont want to have to take Rocco back as my family already fell in love with him and I will do anything to make them friends. Also Rocco has his own cage atm and I will introduce them gradually but its been a few days and Pepsi keeps trying to nibble on his ears still etc.
Thank You so much in advance

This is friendly dominance gone a bit too enthusiastic. If the underpiggy tolerates it, please do not separate.

Hi & welcome.
I wouldn't let your little boy run around with the girls until 7 weeks after he is neutered. He not to young to impregnate your sow. Once you've waited 7 weeks you can see how they get on.
Providing Pepsi isn't making him bleed & shes not relentlessly chasing him round the cage, everthing should be OK.

Okay Thank You so much. I forgot to mention that Pepsi is neutered as well so I dont think thats going to be a problem. I seperated them last night when I noticed the ear, should I put them back together? Rocco wasnt running away from her when she kept nibbling on him but he did squeak when she pulled his fur.
