I've just read the dominance sticky, but I'm still confused about what to do about the scenario I discover this morning. Daisy keeps trying to mount Flobble. But I think it's Flobble who is in season! Daisy is not showing off her Lady Area like Flob is!
Our neutered boar is fairly non plussed by it all, as he usually is! It's very rare for Oscar to mount anyone! I don't think Flobble is unduly bothered, but Daisy keeps doing it!
Just checked now, they are all at peace, so do I leave well alone? Flob and Daisy have always been together and this has never occurred before. We have four girls and Oscar. Our babies (they're not any more!) are the under piggles, but there has been some dominance displays going on with those two recently too, but just chasing. Could a recent mite infestation have upset them all?
I'm confused! The Ivermectic seems to have done the job now as they're not itching.
Any advise gratefully received.
Thanks

I would just leave them be, as long as they are not fighting they will soon settle down. Sounds just like there are a few too many hormones whizzing about!
