This is Sunny, he's 11 months old and he might be getting a little brother tomorrow!

I've read all the info in the forum about bonding two boars. I've purposely waited until Sunny's hormones were a bit more stable until introducing a new friend, to minimize fighting. Personality wise, Sunny is very timid and shy... but give him a little time to settle (on your lap/with someone new) and his incredibly curious and cheeky. He was bullied as a baby by the other guinea pigs in the pet store and had to be isolated, so I'm hoping the months alone will give him the confidence to assert himself when I introduce the new baby.

If anyone has any tips for bonding that may not already be up on the forum, throw them this way! I'm really hoping this is successful, for the sake of my little potatofluff :)
