Hi all,

I brought home my pair of bonded boars on Saturday, they are both around a year old.

They're bedded on fleece with a hay tray and hay rack. They have a good sized box as a hidey, a cosy cup and tunnel.

So far, every morning I pick all their poop out, throw out the used hay and clean with an animal friendly disinfectant. Replace with fresh hay. I also wash out their bowls and water bottle and give fresh water, pellets and veggies. I repeat this in the evening with the exception of the bottle as once a day seems clean enough.

I'll be replacing their cage liner every 3 days I think as it's looking quite grubby now with calcium wee spots etc.

Does this sound ok?

That is fine! Especially as your boys are likely past the worst of the teenage hormones, so things are more relaxed.
