Whats the best way to go about this, my 2 sows show really aggressive behaviour when put together.
Thanks

your two sows dont get along?

May just pair him with one sow and get another sow to go with the other one if your two sows really hate one another?

There is a very good chance that an aggressive sow will not accept a boar either. At least, you can pair up the boar with the undersow and keep the single girl alongside.

Ideally, let them get used to each other next door first. You can try and introduce all three together on neutered ground etc. (Look up our introductions thread in the reference section for more tips.) Have a towel ready in case there are bloody fights.

If you haven't got a boar yet, arrange for some dating at a rescue to see whether there is a chance that it works out in the first place.

I'm having Chesney on Saturday to go with Cheryl who recently lost her cage mate Millie. Buttercup lives on her own as i tried to introduce them together and they just dont like each other so i was wandering wether to try all 3 of them together on Saturday or just stick to my original plan of having Cheryl and Chesney together. ive built a new c & c cage that none of them have been in yet so I'm thinking it would be ok to introduce them in there as its a large space aswell. x
