Hi, I am a daily reader of the gpdd and have posted once before. I had originally bought Comet, a male, on February 28 and have had a great time with him. He was born in January and is totally spoilled. Well on April 6th I decided to get a friend for Comet. Needless to say I brought home two males, Alf and Chip. Alf and Chip were born in December and have lived together since then. My problem is, once I got Chip and Alf home, I put them in the same playpen and they started fighting. Comet was not with them. On Saturday I thought I would try it again and Chip went after Alf again. (note to self and others, in my panic of fur flying, I put my hand down between the two of them to seperate them and got severely bit. With a throbbing finger and sore arm, due to the tetnus shot, I am fully aware that I should have used a towel.) Is this normal considering they have been together the last couple of months? They lay next to each other on opposite sides of the divider and interact
with each other. I am hoping this does not last. They are all in playpens next to each other so they can get to know each other. It is interesting to see how they look at you when you are showing one more attention then the other. Boy do I feel guilty. hahah
By the way, I am the one that posted regarding Comet and I going on the airplane. With three pigs, it would cost me $325 with the health cards and reservation on the plane.My ticket was only $150. So now we are driving the 1300 miles. My pigs will be well traveled. I will have to take pics of them next to Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park and find some where to post them.
My thoughts are with those who have lost a pig recently.
Comet, Alf, and Chip from Las Vegas..........
