Hi and welcome. I recently adopted 2 older very shy ladypigs who obviously haven't been socialized or loved. The best thing is time and patience. My boys i adopted 1 year ago when they were 6months old and it took around 6 months of talking, petting, laptime, tasty veggies and a whole ton of patience for them to be the loud bubbly cuddly pigs they are today. Just spend time letting them get used to you. My ladypigs have been with me 2 weeks now and one of them has only just started coming out of her hideys while i am there even if shes desperate for a drink.
