Personality: (From their current home) "They are very friendlys and inquisitive! They live together with 4 turkeys who they get along with very well, they all eat together from one tray. I also feed them with a feedball that they have to push in order for the nuts to fall out- the pigs and the turkeys charge over when I through the ball and while the pigs push it around, the turkeys follow to pick up any bits they missed. They are used to dogs (they live fence to fence with a pack of beagles) and children and have been no trouble with either. Both of them are very sociable and like to stay near humans. They absolutely love a belly rub and they love being showered with the hosepipe.
Of the two of them, Barneby is showing more sign of testosterone coming through, he mounts Billy occasionally and is also a bit more pushy and vocal with us - at the moment he responds to being told off and doesn't become aggressive. Sometimes the two of them have a little sqabble but there has been so serious fight yet. They usually hang around together and sleep cuddled up. There favourite pastime are mudbaths - which means they are constantly throwing their drinking water over in order to create more mud! "
