At the moment it sounds like a hormone spike and nothing to worry about, just keep an eye. Also, it is common for both sexes as my two girls (who I thought were boys, had babies..long story) have been doing it back to back these past three days! I think it is where one of them finished their heat and the other one started. They do exactly what yours do but it is always playful as they’re popcorning aroundHey guys !
Sorry for another post but it isn’t stopping !
Digby the slightly older pig keeps rumble strutting and is now teeth chattering and chasing the younger pig Monty around with us being at work we don’t like the thought of anything happening to monty. There has been no blood yet or anything , even with a c and c cage now and a loft digby is still going for Monty !
We don’t know what to do , they have 2 of everything now also !
Any help would be appreciated !
Ps they are around 4 months
Please read our teenage and our dominance behaviour guides:Hey guys !
another question I know !
thanks for all the help for us New Guinea pig owners :p
We’ve had our pigs now since November ! They are around 7/8 months now !
the slightly older pig is still very rumble strutting around, teeth chattering and chasing the younger one around the cage I know seems a lot worse through our eyes! But doesn’t seems nice for the younger one
It doesn’t always happen , but the younger one always seems to sort of “whine” or just slightly higher pitch squeaking! they seem oh k most of time but it’s still a good few times throughout the day this happens !
they have never full on had a fight but just want them to be happy
thanks I’m reading through it all!Please read our teenage and our dominance behaviour guides:

Dominance Behaviours In Guinea Pigs
Your younger is submission squealing. Make sure that your younger boy is not being bullied. The teenage guide is telling you how you to that with a temporary separation and what exactly to look out for.
A trial separation is the best way to get the honest opinion of a piggy; if they perk up when away from their mate(s) then they the relationship doesn't work for them. If they want to be back with their friends, then they are obviously fine with how things are.thanks I’m reading through it all!
still hard to know wether they fully get on or not !
the younger ones does seem a bit of a softy !
even when they eating hay together you can hear him squealing away !
they don’t sleep together or anything like that they have there own houses
they say if there being bullied they loose wait and seem depressed , but the younger one still eats fine and seems happy enough when eating his hay and everything !
