Amile on of my older sow has just started attacking every one in the cage they are all hiding from her she seem to be picking on some more than other but had tried it on with all of them. It is really distressing to watch . Lucky Winnie the youngest is small enough to fit behind the house and stay clear of the trouble. This has been going on for a few days with a lot of out burst what should i do? she is laying in one said of the cage all on her own looking a little peeved

Re: Fights

It's rare for sows to fight.. But maybe if she is being that aggressive, then I would take her out to be on the safe side for a while to see how things go.. Maybe then re-introduce her after a while and keep an eye on things?

Sorry hope that helps a bit, but I've had no major experience of sows being that bad towards one another.

have you checked her out for health worrys maybe she is in pain and they are iritating her more then normal, its very rare for sows to fight mine are always fine and there is 19 in the run, mind you its hugh and takes up most of the shed floor, they definalty need space maybe she might need more room,
