Hi everyone,

I am very glad to have found this forum! I have just acquired 3 sweet piggies from someone who was giving them away yesterday, and if there were no takers they were going to be set free :eek:

I have owned a previous pig, but it was several years ago...I want to give these guys the best life possible. As far as I can tell there are 2 boys(one young) and one girl. They are nameless and in a temporary cage at the moment as I plan on building a nice big one.

I look forward to getting some advice and tips from everyone!

Welcome!

I'm so glad that you saved the poor piggies.

If the boys aren't neutered I can almost guarantee she is pregnant. I would seperate her as soon as humanly possible.

If you haven't already check out the sizing of cages for piggies.

Too bad the pigs from the three little pigs didn't have names, that would be a cute way to name them!

Hi and welcome to GPC. I'm sure you will find out more than you ever wanted to know about proper care around these parts.

Please make sure you separate the sow from the boars if you haven't already done so.

Ok, I seperated the female once I figured out how to sex them...although she may already be pregnant. My sister works in the vet office so I'm going to have her check her out. Fingers crossed for a *negative*.

Thanks for all the welcomes!

Still thinking on names:confused:
