    Fighting Brothers

    My two beautiful brothers arenít getting along. I walked outside today to see that they were going at each other with their teeth. I only got them 3 days ago but Iím not sure if this is normal and how long it will be till they stop?

    Some fighting is normal... But it depends. How large is the cage and how old are they?

    They are one and a half years old but iím sure on the cage. However the cage has a ramp leading to the down stairs area weíre on will go if they have a fight.

    Ramps can cause fighting because its narrow and only allows one at a time. Adding another ramp might work but not if it takes away from cage space.

    How big is the cage? And it's very common for pigs, especially boars, to squabble when they're moved to a new living situation.

    Iím not sure about the cage size but itís the cage that theyíve had since they were 6 weeks. Would that be ok?

    Re: Fighting Brothers

    The only way we'll know if the cage is ok is if you tell us what size it is. Can you measure the length and width and post that, and whether it's in inches or centimeters?

    Re: Fighting Brothers

    It's not even large enough for one pig, much less two. You need one at least twice that size for two boars.

    I made my own c&c cage for around $50. I bought cubes from walmart and a huge coroplast sheet from Home Depot.
    The cubes have to have 9x9 holes so you have to be careful with that.
