    Guinea pigs fighting a bit over pigloo. Should I separate or let it happen?

    After I was just finishing reintroducing them after I separated them because Fiona was fighting over a hidey, they seemed fine. I put them in the cage and the same thing was happening. I know nipping is normal but this happens almost every time Hazel enters the pigloo.

    Sorry, I would add a video but I am unsure how I can because it only will let me access my photos

    Throw the pigloo away, or cut another hole in it. No hidey in a guinea pig cage should ever have only one door. That's just an invitation for squabbles and for a pig to get its face slashed when it traps another pig inside.

    If I had my way, it would be illegal to sell pigloos with only one door.

    Thanks, they also chase each other constantly, though they do not hurt one another. I know that chasing Is a was to get exercise as well, but they do this all the time. Also, I have made another hole in my pigloo and it?s working so far. I?m working on making a larger C&C cage for them so they can have their space.
