Just to check are they eeating solids ok? Both pellets and hay? If they are eating ok and showing that kind of behaviour then best to separate them.

They are VERY small to separate - boys do "practise" before they can do real damage; you might perhaps still give them dried bread cubes soaked in full fat goats milk to help them put on weight.

Please continue weighing them daily until they are at least 250g/9oz in weight and doing fine.

Aww, I can't offer any advice as I rely on the lovely girls on here for advice as I'm pretty new to piggies. But, that is good news that they are gaining weight steadily and I hope they continue to. Good luck. xx
