    Boys or girls

    I was leaning towards getting a pair or trio of males but the more research I do it sounds like it's almost inevitable that they will fight when older. Is this true? Should I get girls instead?

    If you want more than two in a single dwelling, opt for girls. Three boys very, very rarely work out. I tried it myself recently with a senior boar and two babies, and as soon as one of the babies hit puberty, the problems started. I separated the senior to prevent him from being injured.

    Long story short, if you want more than two stick with sows.
