I am considering expanding my brood of piggies. I've seen the idea of stackable C&C ages, but... I already have two ladies (Thelma and Louise) but I'd really like a pair of little boys. I know they would need separate floor times to prevent any surprises, but would it be stressful to either pair to have the other sex in a neighbouring cage. I obviously don't want to create a situation that would upset anyone. Any advice would be great.

I wouldn't have the males and females anywhere where they can smell each other. The males might get excited and try to escape same with the females.

Having males and females in the same room together can be risky, as boars can fight, but the standard rule is if they are kept together that the boars are housed above the sows so that they can't smell them. Hopefully someone more experienced in keeping the two together long term will be along shortly :)
