    I think you'll be fine. I couldnt completely get rid or Scooters scent either, and Leo and Simon were fine.

    Cuke, gone. Just like Bella. Yellow pepper untouched. Oh I hope it's not going to be difficult.

    I don't deep clean. However lots of spot cleaning in the kitchen and fleece is flipped when soiled. Best I can do...

    And she's eating hay in her igloo. Whew. Just got to figure peppers out like I do with bella. She only eats it in middle of the night nowadays along with whatever dinner is left.

    Omg. It's a boy. 3 weeks. Ugh! Never had a male. When to neuter? How to clean sac? Man! I would have wanted a female! I'm not surrendering him.

    Just don't let them get together. He'll be perfectly capable of impregnating her in a very few days.

    Most vets won't neuter until about 4 months or so. Just check his sac and penis sheath weekly, but only clean if necessary.

    My first two piggies ended up being males after I purchased what I thought was two females. They lived together for almost 8 years with never an argument between them. I've always gone with females after them but I did find that the males were calmer and enjoyed being held more than any of my females. I've seen many posts here and elsewhere that said a neutered male and a female were really a good combination. I hope that Brody and Bella become best friends.
    Someone else said that about a neutered male with a female. Getting sticker shock on price to neuter when he's min 4 mo, about 3 mo to go. 600 to 800 dollars! Bay area is expensive for pets too!

    That, no doubt, was me! The two in my avatar are/were Chester and Maya. Maya is the only female that I have had in this piggy era. I currently have two four month old boars after being pigless for six months when our beloved Sparky crossed the Rainbow Bridge on New Years Day.
    @Kelsie
    echos my feeling about boars vs. sows.... and that of others I have spoken with. My boys have all been very bonded to us and indeed enjoyed being held.I just don't enjoy the PMS that sows seem to exhibit prior to their heat cycle. Maya would be touchy, bitchy and snappy the day prior to the onset of her cycle.

    After the first time I cleaned Sparky's sac, I somehow really didn't mind it, and also keep in mind that a neutered boar only rarely needs a thorough cleaning. When we have grooming day, all my cavies get a nail trim, genital cleaning, ear cleaning, and an occasional butt bath when warranted. My reason for having Sparky neutered was because he had such huge cajones that he couldn't walk straight nor could he lie down comfortably. It was a real problem to keep him clean with the constant buildup of "gunk" in his sac. I actually had his roomie neutered at the same time so as not to upset the balance between them. Best thing I could have done for them.

    Not sure what I will do with Rascal and Rafi as they are brothers and other than the normal scuffling and posturing, there haven't been any major disagreements. They are well into the throes of puberty with their hormones just raging. Only time will tell if it becomes necessary.

    Re: Not new, but meet new baby girl

    Confirmed! It's Bianca Bella! So 4 to 6 weeks in the 2 x 3 cc. Bella was great at 3 weeks but her 6th or 7th, she got real itchy. Had medicated baths. So no rush to put them in Bellas 2 x 4 cc. Hope it works out...
    Meanwhile, more pics from my crappy camera phone..

    Bianca's eating what I give her. Diced yellow pepper, kale, parsley, lettuce. I'm not doing the more treat veggies yet like tomato, cuke, zucchini, endive that bella gets. Need her to have these as favs. When she's in with bella then.

    What she's eating now is a great start!

    Yes! Kms pellets and orchard grass hay as well. Both unlimited!

    Decided she's BIANCA BELLE rather than Bianca Bella which is too close to Bella Rose.
