So My piggies seem to be getting along, Sundae likes to annoy her sister a lot, she tends to play and Moose seems to get annoyed the other day...as I put hay down on the floor of their cage, Sundae runs underneath it and pops her head out she runs back wards and then pops her head out again Moose gets annoyed and walks off...I snapped a photo of them and See the look on Sundaes face?

Daisy basically follows Minnie's every example. If Minnie tests out the hiding spot, Daisy goes in. If Minnie starts wheeking, so does Daisy. If Minnie wants all the carrot, so does Daisy! It's really cute. Daisy's like a little sister completely in awe of her older sister! Minnie even taught Daisy how to get on top of their hidey to get even more attention when they're wheeking! It took her a while, but she can do it now if she reeeeeeally tries lol

Mine get along but sometimes they do squabble. Sometimes Gin-Gin will try and take food out of Cinna's mouth.

Ferb and Penny are like a real married couple, he's always in the mood, she isn't. They squabble over the last piece of veggie and Penny will try and hide it in a cuddle sack. Penny follows Ferb around most of them time but she lets him know when he's crossed the line. Ferb licks her ears. I had Penny out of the cage today and when I put her back Ferb stared popcorning.

When Taco and Nacho first moved in with me they fought a decent amount, to the point I was worried. Wherever they were before the rescue got them (they were found together abandoned outdoors, also with a sow) must have been a rough place since both have pretty noticeable 'battle scars' on their ears.

These days they are great together. Each of them has a few spots around the cage that belong to them. Their cage is only a 2x4 with a 2x2 loft, which is cutting it close for two boars, but they seem to have so much room they can just ignore each other. If I take one out and not the other though whoever is still in the cages wheeks super loud until he gets his brother back.

My boys are very attached to each other. There can be a lot of rumble strutting but if I remove one from the cage the other will cry until they're together again.

I have noticed with mine if I take Cinna away and Gin-Gin can't see him he'll squeak for him. Then once their reunited he's fine again.

Since I put the young guys and old guys together, the two brother(young) started fighting every day. The cage is a 3x6, so its large enough. The old guys unbonded and Muggle and Who's there bonded. I now have 2 3x3 because of a divider placed in and the young guys split up. Muggle loves to snuggle who's there.
