can you only keep males together? And how do you stop the females from nipping constantly?
Actually I heard that Boars are MORE difficult to keep together, even if they grew up together.
One example: Out of MY Gpigs, Asher is the aggressively dominant Sow, so that is why I keep them separate. When I adopted them they lived in the same small cage at the shelter, but as soon as I got them home. It was like something in Asher's brain snapped and she turned psychopathic towards the other gpigs. In the cage they are now Asher will sometimes chew on poor Toadie's ears thru the bars and her ears are a little chewed up :(
