:eek: I have 5 females (1 has only been with us about 2 months) and our new one today started going around humping the other girls. The girls are getting really upset about it. Asked a friend and she said that all piggies do this and that it is normal. I am not sure what to do. Thanks....
 
It's normal dominance behavior, just that pig trying to show the others that they are top dog. There's nothing you have to do about it, don't part them unless there is blood drawn. You can learn more about introducing guinea pigs and that kind of "New pig dominance" behavior here: Guinea Pigs Social Life
 
Don't do anything. It's normal behaviour. @PigPandemonium gave you good advice, and you should definitely read the link she posted.
 
Your friend is right. All piggies do this. It's simply a behavior to determine dominance.
 
its dominance behaviour my gingey humps my pepper all the time!
 
Ok Thanks....I have just never had any of my other piggies do it so I was not sure
