    Behavior Scared me to death!

    I know where your coming from, especially when my now passed male was getting up there in age. He would sleep like a log, not even flinch, for long periods of time flat out. Lots of times had to pick him up to asure myself he was still with me! Now I can say from my own experience, I have never...

    C&C new cage!!!

    If you mean one more grid as in you would either make the 2x2 a 2x3 or the 2x3 a 2x4, then yes, I think thats a good idea. I'm guessing that you have 2 boys, correct? Because of them being males, the minamun of 2x3 for 2 pigs is a big small, so more space would be better, but I am very happy...

    Frustrated Mom almost shook my guinea out during cleaning!

    eye not looking well

    I don't know what happened in the photos, because in real life her eyes are NOT that cloudy; her eye is the same brightness as her other, which appears to be unaffected.

    eye not looking well

    I noticed this morning that one of my girls, Nibbs's eye wasn't looking right. Taking a closer look at it I could see pink skin in the front corner of the eye, which she had not had the previous night. The other eye (right) is bright and bad side is still bright, not clouding and she seems her...

    To neuter or not to neuter? That is my question!

    I had my boar neutered back in october since his buddy had passed away and I had 2 female pigs. I spent the time finding a vet that had done the oporation many times and I felt comfortable with. If you have a female and no other females take your fancy, I would for sure get him and neuter him.

I don't mind cleaning the cage on the bottom, I have the two middle grids on zip ties, so I can swing them up and clip...
