    Behavior Is Poop as well contained in a 1x2 loft over 2x3 formation as a regular 2x4?

    They potty the most where they eat. So if you feed them in the loft you will contain some of it. But you will likely never completely potty train them. They go where they want. But I wouldn't make the main floor smaller. They need room to run around.

    How Many? Do I keep a mom and baby together?

    Mother daughter pairs work very well. Usually, since Mom is older and bigger she is automatically the boss. Sometimes "teenage" daughters will challenge her for dominance but it is usually settled quickly and without injury.

    What breed? Help identify color and breed! And bonding tips!

    He looks like a young California pattern piggy. It's one of the newer varieties. They look like himalayan but have dark eyes. The body can also be red or cream. The points come in more as they get older. If he doesn't develop points, he could just be a dark eyed white with dark ears.

    Introductions New additions- Surprise Boy!

    Be aware that weight is the main issue for anesthesia. The smaller a pig is, the more difficult it is for them to maintain their body temperature under anesthesia. That's why most vets will want to wait until they're a little older.

    Infection Fungal infection or excessive grooming?

    That looks like fungus to me. A little athlete's foot cream should clear it up. Just apply twice a day and rub it in well.

    Diet Any experience with Standlee hay?

    Lump Large mass/crust on boar's grease gland

    He'll be fine. Use a little dish detergent on the area to help break down the grease. Then rinse well. A lot of boars, and some sows even, get some build-up on the grease gland. If it's really bad you may even have to cut the affected hair off, but be very careful not to cut his skin.
