Chock and Chip are coming along nicely with regards to being picked up and put down again. They dont struggle so much any more which is progress. They are also coming along nicely with being hand fed which i am really happy about. wish i could get some picks up for u all to be able to see my beautiful piggies

They sound like they're becoming more secure and great to hear that they're forming a bond with you. Of my 3 only 2 are content to snuggle in my arms or on my lap. My third girl, can't wait to go exploring.

Because I got them from a petshop they were really jumpy and nervice to begin with
But now they seem to be coming round to my way of thinking

Chock is a dark chocolate brindle colour all over but he has a white strype runnning down his nose
Chip is half albino so his eyes have a red ish tindge to them, He's tea coloured on his body and he has a white head

Today one of the piggies surprised me yet again
Chock who doesn't usually like lying on my lap had amazing lap time with me this morning
HE loved it!
He also didn't struggle when being picked up which is a major step forward

Chip is still a bit flighty when being picked up and he riggles a bit but we're working on that.

Hi Maddy!
It sounds like you are doing really well with Chock! Maybe Chip isn't a cuddle pig, some do squirm and wriggle to be put down! Often they appreciate more as they get older and realise how nice it is to get stroked and back rubbed!!

He likes his cuddles when he's picked up but he freaks at being picked up sometimes

Some pigs never get used to being picked up. Even if they're perfectly happy being held.

Of my 3, all hate being picked up. My oldest girl is a drama queen and wheeks like she's about to be spit roasted. She'll snuggle once she's on my lap though. Her daughter is better only because she gets taken out the most often for nebulizations and anti-fungal treatment. She's sort of resigned to getting picked up. My youngest can't wait to go exploring.

I feed their favourite vegetables everytime they are out to try and get them to associate that coming out is not a bad thing.

Agree it's wonderful when they get more relaxed around you.

They are coming on nicely. Chip still freak out when being picked up now and then but he is getting lots better. Chock is so chilled out its unreal. He loves his head rubs :)

Had a lovely day with the pigs today. They were free ranging for most of the day. They just went back in their cage and are tucking in to some hay

My girls don't get to free range, since they are frequently naughty. I think it would be nice to have though.
