Hi Verity, I'm not an expert on new piggies joining another piggy but I thought you need to keep them separate for about 2 weeks. You might find that Ed doesnt have your scent and Zubin can still smell other humans and other piggies on him. Might be wise to separate them for awhile. If zubin has a blanket putthat in with ed so ed gets zubins smell and vica verse. Not sure if thats right but its must be similar to cats and when you introduce them.

They are fine. Little pigs like to nuzzle under tummies. Zubin is just saying 'no, I don't like that'. Guinea used to with Ton, but a quick nip tells him to stop!

It's not even a bite, he doesn't even get hold of the skin.

I'm sure Eddie and Zubin will be fine together. They just need to get used to each other. Anymore than a nip, then they need separating.

ok, i would keep them apart for that time but by then he will be 10 weeks and when harry was that age he hated another pig and i dont want to risk it if it happens much more then i will. i remember Rudi doing it to Zub when he was little x

Yeah, the longer you leave them, the harder it maybe to re-introduce them again
