Here is another video, I cant figure out why she wines so much, I know shes blind. I'm not hurting her at all, softly touching her, just dont get it sometimes. I feel horrible but i also dont feel I'm doing anything wrong by touching her, I guess thats just how she is because of her blindness..

looks like they are slowly getting there i wouldn't be too worried about them as i didn't hear any teeth chattering or any aggressive behaviour also it will take alot longer as she can't see the other piggie coming so will take longer in them getting to know each other also and please don't take this the wrong way but i wouldn't touch her whilst the other piggie is in with her because she can't see she doesn't know whether its you or the other piggie trying to jump on her so is on the defensive thats why she is moaning at you also to help her to recognise you have you thought about talking to her or even ring a bell so she associates the sound with you touching her.

good luck with the bonding just keep going it will get there

he has chattered his teeth a bit but not a whole lot, she rarely does it. No fighting yet, just him trying to "hump" her and her saying um no get away..

That makes sense, We will start saying a key phrase when we pet her and she will hopefully get used to that after a while! thanks

Hi! Stop worrying.

If a cross gender pairing isn't going work out, you will know pretty much right from the beginning! Whining sows is a good sign - what they are telling the boy is that they are not ready - YET! But they will be... soon...!

Please leave them together; they have already bonded and now need time to work through the whole relationship protocol over the next few days.

Brace yourself for the first few seasons being wild as the hormones react to the presence of a piggy of the other gender. It will help bringing them even closer and will cement their relationship. Later on, things will calm down A LOT.

Aw Frazzle heard her whining from the computer and made some little noises as if to say 'are you ok?'
They look like they're getting on fine :)
Not like my two boars :( Teeth chattering is horrendous.
