    Smile My three boys :)

    Hello,
    I adopted these guys ten days ago after a lot of research. Having three males together has its challenges, so I am giving them more space, hides, food bowls, etc. to deter any fighting. I am bad at pictures, but the three of the like to hang out under their guineadad pocket together and monch on hay together.
    Black piggy is Little Bear
    Tri color piggy is Newt
    and white/brown is Goomba

    Cute pigs! But you need to know that a group of three males very, very rarely is successful. Two can live together, and sometimes a whole herd can, but three is usually jinxed.

    They need a BIG cage, and lots of room to run around.

    Here's some recommended reading for new pig owners: https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...nea-pig-owners

    Yes! I know, and I'm very torn because they usually get along well, especially since I rearranged their cage two days ago. They now have an L shaped cage which is equivalent to a 2x5 + a 2x3. Do you think that's big enough? I will continue to keep a close eye on them and will separate into two pairs if necessary. Overall, I think they are really enjoying everything.

    Thank you!
