    New cagemates

    Hey everyone! I haven't posted in a while but I'm in need of your advice. Over Christmas one of my girls, Owena, passed away. Her sister Willa was on her own for a few months before my boyfriend and I brought in a second piggy. After the quaranteen period we did the introductions and it went normally and for about a month now Willa and Chakra have been living together.

    For the most part they get along, though Willa (the boss piggy) will sometimes chase Chakra and nip/butt her with her head. I'm just curious about these behaviours. Also, Chakra will sometimes continue to pester Willa even after being butted.

    Useful information: both are female, Willa is 5 and Chakra is 3, and they live in a 3x4 C&C cage with plenty of hideys. Thanks for your input!

    One or the other is probably in heat. Pay attention and see if it happens about every 14-16 days, which is about the average heat cycle for a guinea pig sow.
