I have RARELY had problems with an older pig accepting a baby in the cage.
Older pigs are GOOD with babies, and a baby will pose no "threat" to the
older pig. You should be able to put that new baby right in with your older
one. The baby will look to the older one to "mother" it a bit, and your
older on will probably comply. The key is to put them together and WATCH.
IF they are going to fight you will know it VERY soon. Animals are VERY up
front about conflicts with fellow animals (UNLIKE people!)
My pigs have gone HOURS in a car to a show. Sometimes they have stayed in
strange coops or carrying cages at shows for a couple of days, with no ill
effects. Travel CAN be stressful to an animal, but nothing that should
cause any big problems. So long as your pigs keeps eating and drinking you
KNOW they are OK. ENJOY your travels!
