    How often do your piggies popcorn?

    We just adopted two baby boy pups and I'm curious, how often do other's piggies popcorn? Our two boys do it ALL the time - it seems like anything makes them ecstatic, from my voice, to attention and food, cage change, bags crinkling, everything! They are just so so happy. I know this is a good thing, but I'm wondering if I just got two very happy and loving boys (luck ), as I've seen a few others say theirs only popcorn for certain things.

    - Edit; I'm watching them popcorn now as I type this and I'm about 4 feet from their cage talking to them - they just finished some lettuce and hay. It seems like they're ALWAYS popcorning!

    My two girls would popcorn all the time when they were younger. I thought they would jump right out of the cage. Mini could do a complete barrel roll in the air.
    They are two and a half years old now but still popcorn when I clean the cage in the evening, because they know they get veggies when I'm done.

    Does this mean that they won't do it as much when they're older? I sort of hope so ! They're crazy little pups! I'm worried they may hurt themselves eventually.

    They will probably popcorn less as they get older. Even though my boys are well-adjusted and happy little souls, they don't popcorn that much any more......and when they do, it is never predictable. They are almost 16 mos. old and Sparky tops the scale at 3:3lbs (1454).....so amusing to see him popcorn.

    I've seen young squirrels do the same thing playing outside my home office window. They will jump or scramble up onto the tree a short distance and literally throw themselves off backward onto the ground. And yes, it looked like a barrel roll.

    My girls popcorn every time they get new fleece fresh from the wash or orchard grass. Works every time!

    My boys popcorned constantly when they were a few weeks old, and now that they're four months old, they popcorn a lot less, though they still do it daily. They've gotten used to their routine and really only popcorn when they're playing with each other now.

    It's a relief to know that they will slow down a little as they mature ! It's the cutest thing ever though.

    I have an adult boy that popcorns several times a day, every day. My two girls popcorn when I clean the cage, and will randomly popcorn on other days. I think the boy popcorns so much because he's a rescue and his new big cage and cagemates and daily salads are still all new and exciting to him.

    One of mine popcorns like crazy during floor time! He doesn't do it much when he's in his cage but he is also a very shy skittish piggie so I don't know if that has something to do with it. The other one will popcorn when I tickle his sides.

    My piggy popcorns at just about everything. As i'm typing this, he hears the keys and is going crazy with popcorns!
