Then tonight, while watching TV, I heard that familiar sound. At first, since the heat had kicked in (and I have noisy steam radiators), I wasn't sure it was really chirping. But I sneaked into the pig room, and there was Pippin whuffing and chirping away (she was putting some serious effort into it).
I have a chirper again! Coolness!
I caught his first one on camera: http://s332.photobucket.com/albums/m353/amorphtheus/pigs/?action=view¤t=DSCF1390.mp4
The other pigs were all loafing around at the time; it didn't seem to have an effect on the younger pigs but Chubs's previous cage mate took on the same spaced-out look and started his own mini chirping session afterward (which was actually more like a faint breathy chuff-chuff). It was pretty weird.

Pantufinha is my official chirper. She chirps almost every time she's in heat.
Panqueca chirped once. Timidly.
Aimi, adopted last month, didn't chirp first time she was in heat here. After this, Pantufinha was in heat and chirped. Then, next time Aimi was in heat she chirped. OMG, she chirps really loud!!! Really.
So, while most people never hear their pigs chirping, my three girls do that. I was wondering if they learn it from each other.
What do you think?

Although many says this is a rare occurrence, I kid you not peoples, all of ours chirp, (yes, even our special Maxwell) and they carry on even as you talk to them and pet them.
Some people on Youtube told me that I "doctored" the videos and added the chirping, but this is the clearest video I have caught them chirping.
You can literally see Emma moving her mouth and head as she made each chirp!

I got up to check on him, and he gave me the "who, me?" look and went hopping away, back to bed. I really checked things out but didn't see any cause for alarm. So I went back to bed too and he didn't do it any more. I wonder if they sometimes have bad dreams.
