But poor Humph needs a friend so much - can you experienced guys offer an opinion as to whether you think its a good idea to try him with the two youngsters.
As they are young and new to eachother as well as humph I was wondering if it would work? Given enough space and feed bowls etc? oh and after the isolation period of course.
Plus I cant see the floor in my bedroom - I´d lose them all amongst the debris!
maybe i can get dad to work his magic on another old bit of furniture
Do you have a yard? Anywhere to shake out a big cloth or towel? It does sound like this sort of solution might not work for you, but I am going on and on in the hopes someone else will free their pigs and share their space.
I like keeping B & T in a bigger space as I dont have to let them out for exercise so often - they refuse to be toilet trained.
But finding somwhere permanently big enough for 3 is hard. I only have a front door too so dirty linoleum/rug would have to be carried right through the house. Also its warm upstairs in summer and hallway isnt big enough - I´m not making excuses but the practicalities of living in a small flat make my choices tough.
My idea was to put b & T downstairs in the cage and let them out for exercise in the hall [the only non carpeted place!] where poo is not a problem.
I thought the other 3 could live upstairs in the cottage and come out for floor time either together or seperately or both! i know its not a huge pen but its not cramped either and if they get floor time too - ?
i´m just worried about the triangle aspect. WAnt to know if 3´s ever bond and live happily - if two are really young will that make it work? is 3 boars together just asking for trouble?
Plus I´m bad at making stuff and Dad will only do it when he feels like it and isnt down the pub. And he doesnt like making stuff from scratch.
A friend of his made me a little run once and I designed a two storey cage for all the pigs and asked Dad to get his friend to make it. He never did.
