    General: Re: Is it mites or ringworm?

    I would think fungus (ringworm) honestly. I've had 2 boys with mites and they had zero hair loss and minimal itching; but there are different kinds of mites.

    Can you get a cat/dog flea comb and...

    Behavior: Fighting boars :( Should I give up?

    Sigh......it's been a long few days. My guy Vinni was a lone pig, but I found him an adorable Coronet "brother." Had them separated about a week and built a nice big 2x4 C&C cage and was so excited....
  6. Size: Re: Why the *half* grid cage size? (ex 2x3.5 grids)

    Ok makes sense, thanks :) I was just wondering because on the websites that sell full C&C cages they have a 3.5 but no other half size cages. Like why not 2x 4.5 and 5.5 and all the others too? LOL...
  7. Size: Why the *half* grid cage size? (ex 2x3.5 grids)

    This might be a really dumb question, but what is the point of the 2 (or whatever) by 3.5 grid cages? Why the half size? Is it because it's easier for a lid to fit on top without falling in? Or just...

    Behavior: Re: Boar relationship experiences?

    But my question is, even if they get along and make a good pair, are there still going to be issues no matter what? Still some competition - I guess there always is with more than 1 animal. It's not...

    Behavior: Re: Boar relationship experiences?

    It wasn't a planned thing, it didn't matter the sex because he was/is the most friendly, sweet and not-skittish GP I've ever seen. Just had to have him. At the time I didn't know boar/boar...

    Behavior: Re: Boar relationship experiences?

    I wouldn't risk exposing him to an environment like that no matter how reputable the place may be. Multiple pigs in the same room/cages/area with unknown histories. I just wouldn't trust he would be...

    Behavior: Boar relationship experiences?

    Okay so I have 1 male 6-8 month old boar right now. I know it's not ideal to have just one pig. I've come across a long haired (Peruvian or Shetland??) male that is a bit smaller, probably 4-5...

    Thanks. Not an option I can consider at this time, but in the future it looks like a great cage.
  14. Fleece: Re: Digging underneath fleece? & Few questions!

    I appreciate you looking into this, but no I don't see any overreaction on my part. I do see someone being very rude, sarcastic, and condescending to me. I wanted an admin to stick up for me feeling...

    Alright, seriously...I was going to just let it go because I have enough on my plate, and some people just don't get how to word things better, but that last sentence was really unneeded. Even though...
  17. Fleece: Re: Digging underneath fleece? & Few questions!

    Oh good lord....you do know people tend to listen to advice if it's not given in a condescending manner, don't you? Really, you guys scare away SO many people who could benefit from learning great...
  18. Fleece: Re: Digging underneath fleece? & Few questions!

    SIGH....please see my comment to the other person who said something similar. If it's not answering my question, I really don't think it should be brought up on my thread. I really wasn't looking for...

    Don't take this the wrong way, but maybe fully fill the bottle up and have someone else tighten it closed? I can't imagine someone having THAT much terrible luck with all those different bottles! LOL...

    Thanks for reminding me about that, I read it a few weeks ago and forgot about it. I'll try to mince it up really tiny. I think it's the smell though, he backs up if I offer it to him. It has a...

    Vinnie will NOT eat any of the baby bell peppers I got him! Tried green, red, and orange. Grrr! I've tried different cuts and sizes and he just won't touch them. He eats just about everything else...
