A while back I posted about finding Freddie a new wife after his loved Snowball had passed away.
Here is one of the last photos taken of Snowball....

...........................

Freddie spent two weeks alone. Here's the unsuspecting (but bored) Freddie on Thursday......

Oreo, a wife he has lived with before, arrived on Saturday morning.... .

Here's my first picture of Oreo in her temporary pen, settling in.

After a while and she had had a good sleep, I reintroduced her to her husboar, and it was the politest of introductions/reintroductions I have ever seen! He was clearly chuffed to see her, but welcomed her very gently.
Then all at once it was hump-fest. Ah well.
Once he'd got that out of his system I put them both in Freddie's cage and after a bit of amorous chasing things settled down nicely, and have been settled since. She had a moment where Freddie fell asleep and she went up and nuzzled his back, which woke him immediately in a very amorous mood, but later in the evening, and all this morning, things have been calm. They've shared some lovely moments, and I saw him strutting his stuff for her, to which she stayed put and offered a nose-boop, to Freddie's delight (he was all strut-popcorn-strut-vibrate-popcorn-vibrate-strut-popcorn)

She is nervous, but not as nervous as I thought (I was told she was shy), she has eaten out of my hand. She has gone to him when nervous, and yes, basically, a very good reintroduction of two love-birds, both originally from London :)

I haven't managed very good photos, and not of them together, but they have spent time together - I can assure you :)

Photos that O have managed:
Chooken moment from last night!

Thank you for all your compliments and well-wishes for their future :) She's lovely, and he's chuffed, and all is harmonious, so I'm very happy indeed :)
Only thing is I am thinking of changing her name, but can't decide what. Oreo suits her though :)

Snowball was such a gorgeous :love: piggy.

I am so pleased Freddie is getting on with his new wifey piggy. Isn't she a stunner! :love:

Cannot wait to hear more of this new friendship!

That's lovely! Is that one giant cage? Must take forever to clean!
Thank you :)

It's supposed to be one big cage, but it had to be split unfortunately. Snowball had a fall-out with the herd, so I split the cage so that she could live on the top two levels, and the others on the bottom levels. I then found Freddie to partner up with her, and since she died Freddie now has Oreo (since Freddie and one of the other sows do not get on at all).
I would love for the cage to be all-one again, with one herd, but sadly it's not to be.

The run can be taken out and put away quickly and easily, and as in the picture there's ramps from the top for Freddie and Oreo, and if I take the ramps away and fold down the front of the bottom level it becomes one large floor-space for the girls. So run time is split between the two pairs. :)

It does take a while to clean....! :)

I love your set up. That ramp is impressive. I was ready to hang myself with cable ties just trying to make a ramp with 3 c&c grids. :td:

Awww :luv: hello little moth!
