I've not heard Simba 'wheek' at all since I've had him!
Is this normal? I wanna hear him :(

Its perfectly normal I think

Just like people, some piggers are noisier than others ;D

Opening the fridge for veggies used to get Billie wheeking but only softly. He did a loud wheek only 2 or 3 times in his life.

He'll soon start, and once he does there'll be no stopping him ;D

He probably will once he's settled in. Saying that Fudge is really vocal, sounds like I've got a massive parrot squawking away sometimes but H&H don't make hardly any sounds at all. Suppose Simba could be the strong silent type ;D

I'm sure once he's settled he'll start.

Mine wheek at the sound of the door opening, bags rustling - anything that makes them think food really. Simba will soon learn what means food and then you'll never shut him up ;) :D

Mine didn,t make a sound for about two weeks when i first got them.Now they wheek all the time when food is about :)

The piggies have me in hysterics when I go in the shed and they all kick off expecting food,the G-Pig choir can be heard from inside our house even with the windows shut

You should hear mine, especially Rocky, when I rustle plastic bags or open the fridge door. Having said that none of them did it for their first few weeks, until they recognised the sounds and felt confident.

Plese don'y worry about Simba - he's only a baby and needs to settle in and gain confidence x

I think it's great when they all get going, is it just me or do other people start talking to them in a high voice, it's like your trying to talk to them in the same pitch :o ;D

Yeah the plan is to get him 'done' in January, get a larger cage and get him a female friend!
I'm paid monthly and December is a no-go to get it done due to Christmas!
But first thing in Jan the plans will start rolling 8)

My Snowy I think was deaf so she didn't respond to things like rustling bags but when she saw Jack getting excited she would begin to wheek for her food too. She had a different voice to Jack's too - I could tell them apart ;)

Aww bless, last night he got very excited! He watched me put his bowl of veg in his cage, then I bent down to sort the rats out (Simbas cage is on top of 1 of their cages) and he started wheeking REALLY loudly while eating his veg!
Was so cute :)
