We bought two little weaners from a local breeder on Friday to keep our Peggy company. We lost her companion, probably to a heart attack poor thing. The new piglets have a bit of Berkshire, a bit of Gloucester Old Spot, a bit of Saddleback and a bit of Gascon in them. :-)
When we brought them home the plan was to put them into a separate park next to Peggy's and let them get to know each other gradually. We've tried to mix adult pigs together before and they fought so badly that we finally had to separate them.
The park wasn't ready when we got back and we had a lot of guests so we decided just to put all of the pigs in together, all go into the park and kept our eyes open for trouble and react accordingly. There was the odd scuffle and bit of fake and not so fake aggression. Peggy has her mouth cut and the little spotty pig had her leg bitten but they settled down to feed quietly and started digging up the ground together, so we left them for a while, coming back to check on them every so often.
There were no more major aggression problems and all three of them slept together (little one on the middle) in the shed and they had a very long lie in on Saturday morning.
