I have two sows, they are about 5 years old. One of the sows keeps on chasing and humping the other sow when she is in season. This happens about every 3rd week. She follows the other sow around constantly throughout the days and try to hump her every chance she get (about every 15 minutes, except for when they are sleeping/resting). The other sow tries to run away and squeeks a lot but she doesn't bite or show any agressive behaviour. However it seems really tiring for her and she do run away until she gets caught by the other sow, so it doesn't feel like she enjoys it very much.
Do you think I should seperate them for 1-2 days while the other sow gets in season/heat? Or will that kind of make the sow in heat very depressed or anxious if she doesn't get to hump (lol)?
/my first post!
But do you think i should seperate for 2 days while she is this intense?
It may happen for a 5 minute period but then they get back to normal. Seeing little Suzi (at 720g) chasing Chunkita (at 1100g) around the room is a bit of a sight though.
However it doesn't sound like our three are as intense as what you are experiencing.
