    Bully pig

    Well I've had my two girls about 5 days. They are housed in a big homemade cage. Plenty of hiding areas. Seems like one is dominant over the other. Is it normal for one to be bossy over the other?

    Bossy is normal. As long as they aren't hardcore fighting and drawing blood.
    How big is the homemade cage?

    So 64 by 20 inches? I'm not sure if 20 inches is wide enough.... They need more space to get around eachother.

    That cage isn't large enough for one pig, much less two. You'll not only have bullying, but you may wind up with actual injuries.

    Two pigs need a minimum of eight square feet, and bigger is better. Much bigger is much better.
