Just a litle bit concerned that Rocky sometimes is a bit left out. Other people have noticed this too. When Dr was alive he and Riffy sometimes left scarby out a bit. In fact Riff and Scarb didn't even get on all that well - Dr was always the peacemaker. Riffy and Dr each had their special corners to sleep in. When Dr died Scarby moved into Dr's corner. Riffy and Scarby aren't horrible to Rocky, it;s just that they seem to leave him out a bit. Then next time I look they'll be kissing him! I don't think Rocky is unhappy, he probably just thinks the others are elderly and dull ;D

My girls get on well and they're in two groups of three. (not Icey and Tiny, they are on their own together)

Now and again the little ones bicker with each other, so it's all change and they are swapped around!

It could be that you think it and only see what happens in front of you, trust me, they are soo different when no-one is watching!

I think generally even numbers are better for herds because piggys do tend to pair off a bit... but there are excptions of odd numbers that get on fine guess it depend on individual pig personalities. Not had sows so can't say first hand tough. But if yu ask me its a good excuse to get another piggy Lucinda! Can't have Rocky left out can we?
