As some of you may have already read and know, I am having some problems with Fudge and Snickers getting along lately. Mostly due to the fact the Snickers is just entering his teenage phase and is try so challenge Fudge as the top pig.
Anyway, is it normal for pigs to nip each other and pull out their hair? Snickers keeps sneaking up behind Fudge and nipping his lower back and bum and pulling hair out. Which causes some frantic running about and Fudge getting angry.
When i check Fudge to see how he is there is little cuts where the hair has been pulled out.

Is it time to seperate? I really wanted this to be the last resort because i dont have, or can afford another cage at the moment being a student. :(

Your advice please?
