[font=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]I have a sow in a huge cage by herself. My foster pig and her babies (1 week old today) are in a tiny store bought cage. I was wondering if it would be okay to put them in with my sow that's alone? That way they can have plenty of more space and the lone sow would then have company. It would only be for 2 weeks, then I would have to separate the boars out. Would the sow hurt the babies? Or would there be problems? Both pigs have been in with others in the past.[/font]
 
That is fine, putting them together. But is one your sow and one a foster? Most rescues don't let you mix pigs for bonding issues.
