i have 2 piggys and they have been fighting alot lately they dont like sharing spots. there both very healthy before i found 1 of them with open/scabby wounds on her lower back. it wasnt like this a couple days ago.
 
i need to know if it bites from my other piggy or not.
 
Not being there, there's no way for us to know if the wounds are from the other pig.

How big is the cage you have them in? Sometimes not enough space can be cause enough for some scuffles.

How old are your pigs? Sometimes puberty can ruffle a few feathers - so to speak.
 
She may also have a bad case of mites, which could be making her very grumpy. Can you post pictures of her back?
