Oh what lovely photos, isnt he sweet tucked in next to Nibbles - long may it last, it will be like having kids of different ages, some fighting, some making up, some arsiness - so glad you have found him a companion though and really hope they get on and enjoy each other.
Hooray a friend for Nibbles . Excellent news. Be prepared for Top Boar power struggles but Nibbles will be so relieved to know he not the only piggie in the world. Good to read Nibbles is back to his old self .
Little one is great. Seems very healthy and happy. DD loves him cos little and has made her much more confident with nibbles too. We introduced in neutral run in the lounge. Coco was quite aggressive to begin with bit ting and climbing on poor nibbles. Got spare hutch fr him from free cycle. Read all abut neutral smells so yes did all that.
They both seem remarkably at ease with each other and very chatty. I realised how much steve's illness and subsequent death affected nibbles cos he's back to his vocal self....
Nice to know your pig has got company now. Slowly slowly catchy monkey with the two boars - have you de- smelled the accomodation to make it neutral. And introduced them on neutral territory to make sure Nibbles doesn't feel Coco is muscling in.
Lots of food (the magic word for guinea-pigs) And when they do share, make sure there's enough space between the bowls and the water bottle to make sure there's no jostling.
There's lots of advice on Barmy 4 Boars website about introductions. Did your breeder advice about how long to keep in 'quarentine'? Has your new piggle been with other pigs or on his own (I've read on Rescue sites that they isolate for 2 weeks , but alot of rescue pigs will come in with parasites and neglect)
We need pictures you understand (not that I've got piglet envy you know)
