    My experience with the buddy bath is, it started well,I put them back in the very clean cage, and they were all good for 20 minutes. Then they started being aggressive again. I was advised to let them alone, and they eventually settled. But I also have sows, so they're easier to introduce.

I'm wondering if a buddy bath is good or bad in your case. I would think starting out with as little smells as possible would be good. Two clean pigs, a clean neutral space and a super clean cage. Just my thoughts.
    Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm thinking the same thing--just go all out for introductions this time.

    I've heard so many times that girls are better about getting along in general! But I sure love my boys!
