So Teddy Did This Really Weird Thing Today...

Hi,
This may be nothing but I thought I'd fire it off to see if anybody has any experience of something similar. So today my one year old boar Teddy and his brother Pumpkin were doing some mediation in separate runs with my new 9month old boar PJ. Once everyone had enough excitement I placed Teddy and Pumpkin in their cardboard vet crate as they could not go back in their c&c while it's being cleaned, and fed pumpkin a pea flake for being good. When I went to feed Teddy his pea flake, however, he appeared frozen, not in fear as this is abnormal for him. I gently touched his lip with the pea flake (which would have ordinarily gotten a response from such a sassy boy who loves his pea flakes) and it was like he was a statue. I gently picked him up and he returned to normal in my arms and ate the pea flake. This was over the course of about 30-45 seconds. Could it have been stress? Or something else? Ted has since returned to normal.

Any help would be appreciated,
Sapphire

Hello

Welcome to the forum!

he just got a little spooked, nothing to worry about.

Can I ask who lives together?

You have Teddy and Pumpkin living together and a separate piggy PJ?

Teddy and Pumpkin are one year olds who are bonded and living together happily. PJ lives separately but in the same room of the house because he had a lot of behavioural issues with other pigs at the rescue and needs to be kept in a cage on his own. He enjoys seeing other pigs but gets boisterous and so cannot have out-of-cage time in the same run either.

Cool, as long as you aren't introducing them at run times either as it could destroy the bond Pumpkin and Teddy have....

Be nice to see some photos of your piggies

Here they are!
Yes, I don't intend introduce them in the same run at all, because PJ is a bit if a loose cannon
