They are both going to go off at 6 months.  If there is any more shenanigans they'll be seperated next to each other but I would hope thats not necessary.  You live and learn as they say and I will be taking extra special care next time to make sure they are the same sex BEFORE I take them home.  Thanks everyone for contributing x

I think that some people worry too much. If your pigs become sexually active at 6 months it doesn't matter, they will be slaughtered before you even know that they are in pig. Enjoy them and if they want to practice let them. :D
Everyone makes mistakes as the Dalek said climbing off the dustbin.
