Well today I have separated the babies from Lucy. I have four boys and three girls. They have no idea what to do with themselves, but Lucy is running a marathon on her wheel because she finally got it back lol. I separated them from her a couple days early but I think they'll be okay, if not I'll put them back with her. I think though I'll have to separate one of the boys soon since he seems to like to fight with his brothers :/

don't be so quick to separate the boys. it's totally normal for them to
wrestle and scuffle to establish a "pecking order" and dominance.
unless you see blood drawn in these fights, it is okay to let them go
through this on their own.

I had 4 bonded brothers who regularly tussled and squeaked, especially
in the beginning; but they slept together in a pigpile every night, and
were inseparable. it's probably the "dominant" boy who's causing the
most ruckus now, trying to tell everybody what to do!

oh yes~~ absolutely! :crowded:

my Spencer was the smallest of the four brothers, yet he was the boss!
actually, being on top of the pile ensures that if danger strikes, he as
the dominant can be first alerted and can chase off the danger/ protect
his brothers.
