    Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to introduce our newest member of the herd name "Pride". I adopted her two weeks ago. She was quarantined for two weeks and saw an exotic vet and was given the green light. Yesterday I did introductions and the herd didn't put up a fuss about accepting the newest member.

    This video is also my St. Patrick's theme cage.

    Awwww that's a delightful video :). Pride is a very lucky pig. Nice big herd and such a wonderful pen for them. I remember thinking how lucky your pigs are with the last video you posted. I do envy your set-up!
    I smiled to myself through that - not just because it's a lovely vid, but also because every time I thought I had seen each individual at least once another one appeared!

    On a side note here's something I have wondered before: With a large herd how is the pecking order sorted? I imagine there's not such a strict order, perhaps the top one and a few at the bottom, and everyone inbetween are simply inbetween with no strict hierarchy? What are our observations?

    Oh they're all lovely! I especially like your long haired girl getting static shocked hair!

    Oh wow! I just watched the video with my 5 year old and he said all the piggies are cute. I loved them popping out from the curtains. What a lovely set up.

    Did you buy the double decker tunnels or make them? And are those microfibre cloths or something else?

    For a long time I had one that was the definite herd leader who passed away last year and for the longest time I was wondering who was the new herd leader of the group until recently when I introduce "Pride". There was only one piggie who challenged the newcomer which was "Lady" the Self Black. Those two were posturing each other. I think "Lady" is the herd leader and then probably in second is Pride. In terms with the rest of piggies I don't think they really care. I speculate that having a large habitat there isn't a need (I can be mistaken, correct me if I am wrong) to be a herd leader because everyone has their own space. When it comes to veggie time they eat in a big circle together. No one is pushed out during meal time.

    Lol...I live in a dry climate and didn't have the humidifier on during cage cleaning, I turned back on after the video and within an hour the static electricity goes away.

    Thank you. I made them myself. They are just bent grid squares and made the covers out of fleece.

    Thank you

    What an utterly brilliant set up for them. I love your white (electric haired) guinea pig with the orange cheeks. It must be brilliant having a herd. ...
