Hi!

Just another question we have about our boys Biscuit and Teacake! We’re unsure if their ages but we believe Teacake is maybe 6 weeks and Biscuit around 8 weeks old. They’re both boars.

They’re already showing signs of dominance but they’re not really following through if that makes sense? They will mount each other, they’ll have ‘nose offs’ and Biscuit will rumblestrut but very rarely make an accompanying noise. Nothing really comes of this behaviour but it will often end in both piggies popcorning and zooming!

Are they trying to establish dominance? Or just playing? Or is it maybe a bit of both because they’re still pretty young and not experiencing the testosterone spikes that come with piggy adolescence?

If they’re popcorning and zooming together it sounds as if they’re happy.
A behaviour expert can confirm if their behaviour is a mix of playing and sorting out dominance
