Nothing changed for anyone, in fact they were in separate cages... We lost the daddy to the younger one that died about a year ago, they just sometimes get a weird respiratory thing, and like birds by the time you notice the problem it's usually too late! I'm just frustrated to lose so many in such a short time frame. Everyone else appears to be ok, piggies and chickens but I'll be watching closely! My younger piggie was 3 so he certainly wasn't a baby.... The older one that died was around 6 yrs, not sure exactly because she was given to me as an adult. We had her for 4 yrs though.
