Do any of you guys have any singers ?
One of my little sows (adreanok ) will for reasons only known to her , break out in to a cheep cheeping (sounds like a canary )
When she starts , most of the others stop in there tracks untill she has finised ,
No ider why they do it ?

Only the theoey , is because she can .

Some say it is a warning ot nere by danger,
My thoughts, they start a wheek that go,s a bit wrong , but they enjoy what they hear so continue doing it

Your thoughts

I have heard Sundae and Linney (my previous pig) chirp/sing on occasion. Apparently, no one really knows what it means. I do note that the other pig certainly paid attention to it, so it must mean something to them! I have never heard Hadley chirp, but then again I have only heard it once or twice from Linney in her entire 6-year lifespan and have only heart Sundae do it once or twice in over 5 years, so none of mine seem to be frequent chirpers.

Pixel is a chirper - sometimes it's when she's startled by something but often it's totally out of the blue.

It's usually the harbourer of doom when BonBon does it. Each one, marks the passing of a piggy a week or so later... Last heard in February this year, before Biscuits passing.

Our now sadly rainbow piggy Fudge was the only one of mine I've heard chirping. Once she was in the outside run and startled by a bird, but the other times she was inside and there was no obvious cause for alarm. Each time she sang all the other piggies stood still in silence as though mesmerised. Wish I'd caught it on film. It was magical.

My Peanut has done this twice. Both times he was having floor time which he hates, he got in the alcove when the cage was pulled out for cleaning. The chiriping went on for several minutes and every time I poked my head round the cage to look at him he stopped, as soon as I moved away he started again. Spike stood completely still and watched him.
