Sorry for posting another thread here.


Earlier whilst the girls were out for floor time, Mabel was doing a really strange noise I've never heard before. She sat in her litter tray of hay, eating away, but doing a really really low pitched wheeky noise.

It was like the noise they do when they're walking around exploring and 'talking' to eachother. But the pitch was extremely low and at first I didn't even realise it was coming from her!

I tried to post a video but photobucket won't let me haha. Don't think the link will work but I'll try.



Just curious to see if anyone elses piggie makes this really low pitched noise?

Yes it's the same pitch level as her grumpy tone, but it's the same sound as her 'talking' sound.

It's strange. I'll keep my eye on it. Maybe she just generally has a different 'voice'.

It's quite hard to hear on the video. The video worked viewing from my iPhone. Strange haha :)

They do all have a different 'voice.' I can tell my pigs from each other even if I'm not in the room. Linney has a really shrill 'wheek.' Sundae's 'wheek' is kind of raspy (she must have been a chain smoker in a previous life!) Linney's 'talking to herself' voice is very soft and whistly, whereas Sundae sounds like someone rubbing a balloon with wet hands! This may just be her own unique tone of voice.
