Hi all i am really excited that i am getting a new herd to live in the house. Let me introduce you all all the new occupants.

THis is Yorkie (photo taken when he was a baby). Yorkie used to live with Fudge until i unfortunately lost Fudge in January. Yorkie is now 6 weeks post op from neutering and has recovered very well.

I am collecting the new girls on Saturday, me and hubby are driving from Coventry to Leeds (making a day out of it).

They are all going to live together in a 2 storey C&C cage. I am going to partition the C&C for now so that they can all get used to each other through the bars and then i will introduce them to each other. Cant wait x so what do you guys think of my new herd? xx

eek how exciting they're staying in :) are the other girls from the C&C going with the outdoor herd or staying as a trio?

Have you got your grids yet by the way?

Hi Helen the new trio that were in the C&C are now temporarily in my new giant outdoor double storey hutch and have setlled in well. Hopefully very soon we will get our shed built and they will move in there with the existing herd.

I have not heard a thing from B&Q but we got the last pack of grids from Netto in Coventry. Unfortunately my husband never got chance to check out the Rugby Netto. I think a complaint to B&Q is coming on x

Awww theyre all gorgeous.... I'm really excited for you :))
Yorkie has an amazingly unusual (to me anyway) colouring - he's stunning x)
xx

Hi Candyfloo.

Yorkie is even more handsome now he is fully grown. I do love his colour and he has pink eyes too. I think he will be one happy piggy when he gets all his girlfriends cause he has been rather lonely since Fudge died, although he is is his separate cage he can still hear Calli and Bling, so hopefully it keeps him happy. xx

Hi all
just need some advice about the introduction of the herd. I am wondering if i should put my existing pigs in their partitioned bits of the C&C cage before i get the other 2 girls on Saturday or if i should wait and put them all in their partitions at the same time.

Also how long should i leave them in their partitions before i introduce them to each other? should i be looking out for behavioural signs as to when its the best time.

All help and suggestions will be very very appreciated x

I would move them in all at once, so everypig is equally new; pehaps even put the Bramley pigs in first.

Look out for behavioural signs like active, positive interest (sniffing through the bars, flirting, eating at the same time, wheeking, sleeping against the bars etc.) Give the new piggies about two days to settle into their surroundings and to get their bearings and then take it from there.

thanks Wiebke i was hoping you would see this post. I really cant wait and i actually get some time off work soon so i can spend a lot of time keeping a close eye on them. I actually think that Calli my most timid girl is quite dominant so am a little bit concerned, what should i watch out for, should i be worried if there is a bit of bossing around?
