We need some of your opinions on a little problem I have,
Basically, I own two male pigs who live in a 3x2 at the moment, about two weeks ago they had to be separated, due to dominance issues, but soon to be re bonded hopefully and put into a 6x2 c&c cage
My mums friend owns guineapigs and is giving them away, they aren't living in the best way as they have been put to live with a rabbit and get very little attention, I would love to give them both a home with me but I only have a few options (that I can think of)~ try and bond all the 4 pigs together BUT they are all boys and are all aged 7months to 1year which is there hormonal stage, my other option is putting one pair in a 3x2 and same with the other pair, but I would be concerned with this as it isn't a lot of space for either pair and if either pair have a fall out I am stuck
Obviously I am going to put my pigs first as they are most important but I would hate for the other pigs to end up in the wrong hands thanks

It is lovely you are thinking of helping out with these other two boys and I understand about them falling into the wrong hands but as you say you have to put your piggies first and they haven't been bonded yet so I would look at that issue in hand first. A pair of piggies would need a 2x4 c&c and especially hormonal boys too unfortunately

If you can do it two pair would be the way to go. Otherwise could you suggest she surrender them to a rescue?

I think I have decided it's pretty much impossible for me to give them a good home, as I havnt got the space for them, but I think I might find a good home for them, or give them to the local rescue of I could ask on here if anyone wants them?

I honestly think that is the best idea. Have you seen our rescue locator at the top of the page? Are there any local to you?
