I'm sorry about all of my posts, but i just want to make sure my boys are happy!

Last night i noticed they were running around the cage and jumping in the air while making little squeaking noises - this is a good sign right?

I also saw some nose offs - i think Cheese is trying to take back his place as head pig since crackers has been a bit bossy lately - no teeth chattering or yawning is good right?

They were also laying out on the fleece with their back legs sprawled out - not with eachother but close enough to eachother and out in the open - is this a good sign?

Sorry guys, just trying to be a good piggy momma and making sure i pick up on any potential problems!

Jumping in the air is called popcorning, it's a happy, excited action. To my it sounds like your boys are quite content with eachother :) With any pairing or group, regardless of sex, there will always be the odd squabble or dominance behaviour. At long as there is no scrapping etc then you are fine!

They sound fine... popcorning is a sign of happiness/excitement, and laying sprawled out is the sign of a comfortable, unafraid pig. And they all have their dominance squabbles, which are normal so long as no one is bitten and there is no physical battle royale going on.
