I am geyting a boar for my boar now. I need to know every possible thing to know about introducing them and people have said they stink the first few days? Anyway if you know how to introducr them please let me know asap because I dont want to have anything go wrong.
 
You should read the guinea pig social life page: Guinea Pigs Social Life

Make sure you quarantine the new pig for 3 weeks unless you have adopted him from a reputable rescue.

They do stink at first. They are just scenting everything. Once they get their hierarchy in order they will stop that.
 
Julia, did you copy and paste that from somewhere?
 
Before you introduce them, you must keep them in separate cages away from each other, behind closed doors, for at least 2 weeks. This is the Quarantine stage.

Quarantine should be 3 weeks.

Macy, I'm glad you are getting a friend for your boar. How big is the cage you are planning to house both of them? Cage space really does matter with boars. If you have room, go bigger than recommended size.
