I have had 2 pigs who are brothers for about 3 months now. They are close to a year old and have been together since birth, although they're not from the same litter. When we adopted them they were fine, but over the last few days that have started chattering and fighting frequently, and I don't know why. Does anybody know what I should do to make them cease hostilities? I'm busy with school and don't have the time to constantly watch them and make sure they don't fight.

Hi! Your boys are currently in one of the most tricky phases of their hormonal teenage months. The good news that is if they have made it until here as a pair, their chances are actually not so bad for staying together. Give them as much space as you can and remove any hideys with just one exit as well a blocking any corner that one of the boys could be locked into.

If it is really bad, split them for a day or two to give them time to calm down again, but keep them next to each other. Introduce only on neutral territory, following the tried and tested tips in the guide.

In order to understand what is going on and what you can do, please take the time to carefully read this very detailed guide on teenage boars. You will find it very helpful. Boars: Bullying, Fighting, Fall-outs And What Next?
