    Question Introducing 3 males??

    Ive found three males at a local shelter(ages 6m, 1yr, and 1.5yr) They are not bonded and 2 are pretty close in age. Is this a good idea? I REALLY don't want to have to clean out three cages. These are the only piggies for sale in my area. Should I keep looking for some females or is this a good idea?

    You could ask the shelter if they've tried introducting them before. I would take 2 of them not 3 just because they are males and they can be really hard to bond. Plus if it does work you would need at least a 2x6 for all three. But bigger is always better especially with males. If these are your first then I would definitely keep looking for females. Males are more work and can smell because they scent mark alot. Females are easier especially if your a first time pig owner.
