    Switching to girl piggies?

    Ive had many boars over the years, but Im a wee bit tired of the boar behavior. I somehow can never get anyone to pair with each other. Everyone wants to fight everyone allllll day. Ive tried the whole runaround. Bonding baths, bigger cages, new cage set ups with no scent, neutral introductions.
    I have 6 boars right now. One of my babies just passed last week. We are taking it really hard. Were hoping to get another texel in future. Id prefer not to keep the boar fighting cycle going. Any advice?

    6 boars in one cage is A LOT and might be contributing to the "boar behavior". I would separate into at least two cages with 3 boars or even better three cages with 2 boars.

    Right now they’re in 2 seperate cages. About to be 3. But it doesn’t really matter because no pair works well together
